Why is this book so concise? [Top]:

When you are buying a book you are not paying for quantity of pages, you are paying for information and useful resources containes in those pages. It is not the quantity of pages or size of the book that matter: it is the amount of resources and information which you will gain.

Typical figure drawing template book contains many poses in many pages, but you can only use one pose at a time. It is time consuming and it limits your imagination. Single pose template is intended for thoughtless tracing and offers no room for improvisation.

This book compresses numerous poses in six planogram-style multiple poses figures. Thus, when you draw you can select the best movement/pose for your drawing from variety of options. You can creatively select, mix, match and combine the most advantageous movement and pose for your figure drawing.

This is why despite the fact that this book contains only 7 pages, the number of potential drawing outcomes which is contained in these pages is almost unlimited. By buying this book you are buying an extensive amount of drawing resources which are conveniently and efficiently compressed in six effective planograms.

Why does this book cost this much? [Top]:
  1. This book is printed on polyester, not on paper. This book is not cheap for the most part because, unlike typical paper books, it is printed on polyester. So, the price of the book cannot be compared to generic paper books but rather should be compared with polyester templates which are much more expensive than a typical paper book. Due to the material used for this book, part of the manufacturing process is done manually and every single copy is treated almost as a one of the kind product. It makes process more costly but it ensures impeccable "boutique" quality of every single copy of the book.
  2. This book is laminated for better longevity. Our commitment was to provide you with a durable product. Therefore, all pages of the book are laminated. The laminating material used for this book is very thin and very translucent in order to not make book unnecessary bulky or to reduce natural translucency of polyester. If printed on paper and laminated, the book would be much cheaper but it would be much less efficient for the drawing process. Translucency and durability of the book are the keys for success. Translucency allows you to double quantity of outcome poses by using the templates from both sides. Durability was the major concern when the book was manufactured and, therefore, additional costs of lamination were considered to be necessary to make the book the efficient tool for drawing that it is now.
  3. Quality control. Due to the unique nature of the book, for the sake of better quality control we do not outsource our manufacturing. The book is printed and manufactured in the USA under our close supervision and we guarantee the exceptional quality of each and every printed copy despite the complexity of production process.

The bottom line is that this is not another mass market type of generic "figure drawing for dummies" book. This is a professional tool created by experts with respect to complexity and importance of figure drawing process and such tool cannot be created cheaply.
