"​Guides to Drawin​g, ​William D. Berry"​ is a book of notes and tips for drawing humans and animals, especially Alaskan mammals and birds.

Beloved Alaskan artist and illustrator Bill Berry developed this set of carefully executed and beautifully detailed drawings as instructional aids for a class he taught to community college students in the 1970s.

Included in the book are seven other sketches and watercolors by Berry, taken from his field notebooks and other sources currently housed in the Berry Papers Collection in the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives in the UAF Rasmuson Library.

With a foreword by artist, Professor of Art, and UAF College of Liberal Arts Dean Todd Sherman, remembrances by Berry’s family, a brief biography, and Berry’s own introductory remarks to his drawing class students, this book is a beautiful introduction to Berry’s work and talent, as well as an invaluable resource for the student of life drawing.
