This is not a how-to book, necessarily, as there minimal exercises to carry out. Nonetheless, the book is interesting, for it shows the geometric (if that’s the right word) nature of the human head, and how the ratio of sizes between various facets of the head were worked out over the centuries. The author knows his field and taught for a long time at a New York art school. Instructive and entertaining. Recommended.
