All artists are tired of persuading their nearest and dearest to look sad...look glad...look mad...madder...no, even madder...okay, hold it. For those artists (and their long-suffering friends), here is the best book ever. Facial Expressions includes more than 2,500 photographs of 50 faces--men and women of a variety of ages, shapes, sizes, and ethnicities--each demonstrating a wide range of emotions and shown from multiple angles. Who can use this book? Oh, only every artist on the planet, including art students, illustrators, fine artists, animators, storyboarders, and comic book artists. But wait, there's more! Additional photos focus on people wearing hats and couples kissing, while illustrations show skull anatomy and facial musculature. Still not enough? How about a one-of-a-kind series of photos of lips pronouncing the phonemes used in human speech? Animators will swoon--and artists will show a range of facial expressions from happy to happiest to ecstatic.

This a very nice book that studies facial expressions of different people and ages. This is best for beginning caricaturists who will be able to get themselves acquainted to facial features and perspectives.
This is also good for animators, there is a small chapter for references of the shape of the mouth as they pronounce each vowel or consonant, perfect for practice and application.
