For those who are standing in the right place, his chalk drawings invite them to step right into the scene or, in the case of the artist's well-known Swimming Pool in the High Street, dive right into the water. Pavement Chalk Artist includes a fabulous selection of Beever's most intriguing anamorphic drawings. Each one is accompanied by a description of the techniques he used and the challenges he overcame. These photographs record the development of his unusual skill and understanding of perspective. Readers can see how his art progresses and matures as he takes on commissioned works and a wealth of original, inventive subjects in locations worldwide.

I really enjoyed this book a lot. Beever’s chalk drawings are absolutely amazing and I found the stories of their creation fascinating. Definitely worth checking out if you have any interest in the subject.

5 stars not because it is a great book, but because I like looking at Julian Beever's art and there was a nice selection with commentary by Beever.
