About the Author
BURNE HOGARTH (1911–1996), hailed as the “Michaelangelo of the comic strip,” was one of the most iconic cartoonists and influential arts educators of the twentieth century and remains so today. After attending the Chicago Art Institute and Academy of Fine Arts at the age of fifteen, Hogarth began an illustrious career in arts education, fine arts, illustration, advertising, and comics, and became recognized as one of the earliest creators of the graphic novel. Best known for his innovative illustrations of the syndicated Sunday Tarzan, Hogarth broke fresh ground in the newspaper comic strip by combining classicism, expressionism, and narrative in a powerful, new way.
As cofounder of the School of Visual Arts—one of the world’s leading art schools—he brought his unique approach to art into the classroom. His passionate lectures on anatomy and art history formed the foundation for The Burne Hogarth®Dynamic Drawing Series that continues to teach and influence artists and animators worldwide.
Hogarth’s art has been exhibited in many important galleries around the world including the Louvre in the Museé des Arts Décoratifs and Marseilles’ Bibliothèque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades.

I have studied many anatomy books for artists and I wanted a book about the human head. This helped me understand the structure so much better than most I've read. In fact I think some of the later books I have are based on Burne Hogarth's book.
The links to the marketplace paperback do not work.
Its a great book. teaches you how to draw the head starting from familiar objects and how to draw it by just changing the angle of this objects. Starts from the very basics and starts building up on it, its like a basic anatomy lesson and it will teach you the relations that you find within all the features in a face.
