KIRKUS REVIEW

The title says it all. With no words except for a foreword admonishing young artists to be careful and another advising adults that ""mimicry is prerequisite for developing creativity,"" Ames offers for emulation 50 full page sequences, each representing about eight stages in the standardized, utilitarian drawing of a different vehicle. Young children might admire such work in a peer, but this has neither the stylish simplicity and plain fun of Ed Emberly's drawing books nor the model-like precision of real mechanical drawing.
