AbiWord

abiword

Not only does AbiWord consume a mere 20MB of memory with a document loaded, it’s fast, small, and even opens Word 2007 documents as well (oh, and WordPerfect ones, ClarisWorks ones, ApplixWorks ones…)

The Art of Caricaturing

Mitchell Smith

This 1941 book, written by Mitchell Smith, is a fascinating read in its own right. Not only is it fun just to look at – most of the caricatures raise a smile in their own right, even if Kaiser Wilhelm II is a distant memory by now – there’s a wealth of practical information in here. Either as a historical curio, or for an artist looking to create some 1940s styling, this is an interesting tome.
