The Airbrush Book
"Art, History and Technique."
by Seng-gye Tombs Curtis and Christopher Hunt
The airbrush has changed the face of Western graphics and fine art during the twentieth century. With its sophisticated system of spraying colour selectively, the airbrush can cast such a spell of glamour, dynamism and sheer erotic appeal.
The examples in this book make you scratch your head and think “how did they create that?” Cross-sections of car motors, the end of a burning cigarette and the classic close-up of women’s lips appear more than real.
Although important as a record of airbrush art, this is also a comprehensive technical manual on the selection and use of the airbrush tool.
