Using a series of 300 drawings and diagrams, the author analyzes the basic structure, anatomy and proportions of the human head. He delineates the musculature of every facial feature, explains wrinkle patterns and demonstrates how to draw the head from every angle. The text explains how to age the face from infancy to old age, and defines a diverse array of head types by structure, explaining their proportions and the features that go with them. Works by such artists as Vermeer, Degas and Picasso supplement the author's own drawings throughout the text.
