Juliette Aristides has produced another book. The Classical Drawing Atelier was amazing, but it was very short on actual instruction. It was meant to be just an examination and explanation of the classical drawing instruction that almost died out in the first half of the 20th century. (Which story you can read all about here.)
Her most recent book is the actual lessons and exercises.
If anyone would like to help out, I would be very grateful. (I'd cheerfully buy it myself, but the only means I have to pay for things online is PayPal, and apparently there is some kind of rivalry thing between Amazon and PayPal... V. annoying, but probably a good thing in the long run that I can't just go spend all my money on Amazon.)

Also, for the young lady who emailed me asking if she could get formal instruction in Alaska, I think this book and her Classical Drawing Atelier might be a good place to start.
