If you want some great artist books then head over to http://processjunkie.blogspot.com Alberto Ruiz has done an amazing job at get some great artists books printed in an even more amazing format. I picked up these two and plan to purchase the rest in the near future. Alberto's process book is great if you want to learn some tricks in Illustrator and I highly recommend Sean "Cheeks" Galloway's books (both volumes) as well you can pickup books from other talented artists like Robin Mitchell, Joe Pekar, Matt Stewart, Erwin Haya, Wade Shin and Andrew Wilson. They look great all together on a bookshelf but even better in your hands checking them out! Dont these two look great in my hands?
