Customer Review

on 7 March 2007
This is a useful but not essential reference book for the artist. There is a comprehensive range of models of various ages depicting an array of expressions though it is at times difficult to know which ones they're supposed to be! It would have been helpful if the author had listed the expression under each photo instead of having to cross reference a list at the front of the book. I think it's unfair, as a previous reviewer wrote, to label all the people as 'ugly'. They are, by and large, ordinary looking people you'd probably see in the street and many have faces full of character. Who would want to buy a book full of unnaturally beautiful or bland faces to work from? I checked out the Fairburn system too; it's out of print and if you do find a set of books it's very expensive (over £100). This is an inexpensive alternative - cheap and cheerful - but I can't help think that you'd be better of with a handily placed mirror to work from or, better still, a digital camera to take pictures of yourself for reference.
