KIRKUS REVIEW

Gibbons (The Honey Makers, 1997, etc.) employs her creative palette to shed both light and color on the tools and supplies of artists. Ranging from collage spreads of different kinds of paper to the variety of paints, brushes, and markers that an artist uses, the illustrations show the materials found in a typical art box, and how they’re employed. The brilliant colors of her drawings are carefully framed and matted on samples of handmade paper that add texture to the design. Combining a visual feast with simple explanations, Gibbons demonstrates again why her books are staples of any collection. (Picture book/nonfiction. 4-6)
