Il Libro Dell'Arte

on: June 12, 2007, 01:24:44 pm
for those who have not read this wonderful book, i found it online more or less the same as the one you can purchase:

http://www.noteaccess.com/Texts/Cennini/index.htm

sections 1-6 are the important part, it really is a great read (and fast too)

my favorite lines are "Take note that, before going any farther, I will give you the exact proportions of a man. Those of a woman I will disregard, for she does not have any set proportion. ...I will not tell you about the irrational animals, because you will never discover any system of proportion in them."

so Cennino is not exactly a genius, but it's still cool :P

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.
