From the Back Cover:

Are you getting the most from your brushes? Whether you work with watercolor, oil, acrylic, or ink, on canvas, paper, wood, or fabric, your choice of brushes is crucial to achieving the results you want. No longer do you have to buy and hope for the best. With Brushes there's no guesswork involved in selecting the perfect brush for every project. This comprehensive guide will tell you: why the origin of the hairs or bristles in a brush is so important to the finished quality of your work; why some brushes are so expensive and which are the best buys; how to choose the right shape and size brush for your work; why brushes intended for watercolors should never be used for oils and acrylics; how you can keep your brushes in good shape for many years; why you should use good varnish brushes; the truth about synthetics and synthetic blends; and much more. So don't compromise your artistic vision. Whether you're a watercolorist, oil painter, calligrapher, fabric painter, hobbyist, woodworker - or use brushes for any purpose, this authoritative new book will make sure you never again have to ask, 'Which brush should I choose?' (6 X 9, 104 pages, color photos, b&w photos, illustrations)
