Just stumbled across this this morning (while looking for something else, as usual) and thought it would make a fun project to do at some point here...

It's a drawing instruction book (mostly text, with a few illustrations) but the fun part is that it's written as a dialogue between Mamma, Ellen and Charlotte, basically talking each other through various techniques. So it would be interesting to do as a project where different people take the different parts, or as a straightforward group project.
