Art in Ten Minutes by George Mackenzie Munro

A lightning sketch lecture.

The presentation of this amusing "Lightning Sketching" act involves no particular skill. Very little practice is required to produce the drawings that illustrate the booklet.

  • Foreword
  • Presentation
  • Fishes
  • Notes On The "Birds" Sketch
  • The Restless Fays

The Magic Wand (1910 - 1957) by George Mackenzie Munro & George Johnson & George Armstrong

Martin Breese purchased the copyright to the Magic Wand many years ago. He intended to issue material from the magazine in book form and was little to know, at the time, of the advent of digital publishing and ebooks.
