Fandex - Painters
Another great addition to the Fandex family. This guide holds 50 die-cut cards, fastened together so you can flip through without losing any of the cards. Each card contains short biographies and little known facts of some of the greatest painters. The cards are topped with a picture of the artist, and at least one of their paintings appears somewhere on their card. Beginning with Giotto (born around 1266, according to my Fandex guide), you'll learn about well known and little known artists, even more recent artists. A compact Who's Who of painters. ~ Melissa
So named because they are fan-like indexes with pictures (like a field guide). A new concept in field guides, these 50-card decks are permanently bolted together at the base. Instead of opening it like a book, you fan out the cards to access the “page” you need. Tops of the cards are individually and ingeniously die-cut, providing a visual of each specimen. The body of each card functions as a complete chapter of the guide, containing information about it’s particular subject. Because information is contained on the front and back of each card, there’s actually quite a bit of information - the rough equivalent of a small field-guide page. A helpful index at the end of each helps you quickly find the card you need. Fandex topics appear below, but see our index for more specific information about each one.
