Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter is having a major impact on the Making A Mark Chart and manages to get listed as the top book in three categories
- best selling book in Painting
- top rates new art book
- best selling new art book
The remainder of the top rated and best selling books are dominated by those books which have done well during the course of the year - which is not unusual to the run-up to Christmas. My website includes listings of all those which have achieved a top spot since I started it in Spring this year.
What's fascinating is how important the number of reviews are for keeping a book in the public eye. The more people review a book, the longer its life and the more sales it achieves.
Just click a link and go straight to the category of your choice and find out which I think are the rest of the top 10 art books in November!

Top New Art Books
What I'm finding more and more interesting each month is the final listing of the top new art books each month.
This necessarily is somewhat partial and an edited version of the Amazon listing because of all the books I exclude to keep the focus on fine art for adults (eg I exclude all art books for kids or about illustration and for commercial illustrators, graphic designers etc).
The interesting new movers this month are three new books from North Light Books
- Pastel Pointers: Top 100 Secrets for Beautiful Paintings (based on Richard McKinley's Pastel pointers blog)
- 2011 Artist's and Graphic Designer's Market (Artist's & Graphic Designer's Market)
- Sketchbook Confidential: Secrets from the private sketches of over 40 master artists
Mind you the content has to be excellent too! ;)
