A combination of three versions of Ruskin’s The Elements of Drawing available for free download. The text has been physically edited via collage to remove all instruction and focus on the process and feeling of making a drawing. A drawn rubbing of the final book is included, an indexical sign both of the process that made it and of the experience it describes.
