Gracing each beautifully designed page of this must-have collector’s title are original step-by-step instructional drawings and art tips from four books that helped artist Walter Foster grow into the legend he is today: How to Draw the Head, Heads from Life (18), Heads from Life (18A), and 101 Heads.

About the Author
More than 85 years ago, Walter Foster—a well-known artist, instructor, and collector—began producing art instruction books from his home in Laguna Beach, CA. He originally wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped, and distributed them himself. Although Walter passed away in 1981 at the age of 90, his legacy continues in a growing product line. Walter Foster Publishing now provides how-to books and kits to millions of enthusiastic artists worldwide who enjoy the rewards of learning how to draw and paint. People who have never before picked up a paintbrush or drawing pencil have discovered their artistic talents through his easy-to-follow instruction books.
How to Draw Classic Head’s and Faces in a great how to drawing book reminiscent of the sixties. If you are wanting to learn how to draw and are a fan of Mad Men, than this book will really appeal to you. The sketching techniques reminded me very much of this show, with similar hair styles and outfits.
The step by step instructions are very easy to follow and very easy to pick up, even if you haven’t done much drawing in the past.
