3D Total Publishing truly has an impressive book collection. I didn't know one could get love bombed by books but it really happened to me, cross my heart and hope to die!

Their collections have outstanding quality, not only in reference to content, layout and design but also in the physical quality of the books themselves.

I find their content to be spot on and relevant to art today, as a multi layered medium that ties together hands on craftsmanship with the complexity of high level digital artistry. The books are rich in the “know how” and give a pallet of styles from a collection of professional artists.

I was surprised by the level of detail around their products, many books included a complimentary high quality print of the artist work, and some books were autographed by the artist themselves. What a treat!

Their customer service is impeccable and personal. I was really aware that there is a human on the other side, funny how the absence of AI can make a human feel valued.

Awesome And Great Art Work

You can’t go wrong with purchasing one of her books. You can feel the art. You can see the art. You can immerse your imagination and see what she’s saying.
The colors are amazing. The quality is the best.
Definitely buying the next one as they get better and better.
Get them before they’re gone.

Wow!!!

I've been following Loish's work for years. Her evolution is incredible. I own the first two books and I gifted two more copies to my daughter. Looking forward to purchasing the third. Thank you so much for making books and artist like this available to us. Keep up the great work.

I bought two Loish books. They're both great. This one is full of beautiful artwork and very interesting insights int her approach and experience as an artist. Well worth buying!
