This is a reprint of an old cartooning book. Let me tell you all, that I have alot of books on cartooning. This is very easy to understand. I have spent alot of money on carttoning books only to be let down when I get them. This book will not do that at all.All types of human subjects are touched on. The method of shading and line work is very old style. That is what I like about this book. Anyone who wants to draw cartoons will benefit from this book.
