Prebles' Artforms helps you understand that as humans form works of art, we in turn are shaped by what we've created. This emphasis on the impact of art on society and individuals ignites interest in various disciplines of the arts. Building on the foundation laid by original authors Duane and Sarah Preble, current author Patrick Frank combines coverage of classic works and contemporary art to reflect the ever-evolving state of human creativity.

The 12th Edition offers updated images and new Creators essays that highlight the contributions of key artists. The text explores the increasingly important interactions between art and the digital world. Examples include enhanced coverage of digital drawing and an expanded discussion of artists' use of software editing.
