A great resource for any artist and especially animators. Besides having a wide variety of ethnicities you get expressions ranging from ages 20 to 83. There are extra galleries featuring headgear, kissing and even phonemes. I find this book very useful.

I loved this book! There are sooo many faces! His black and white photos portray a gamut of emotions and angles. I didn't like that the photos were only a couple of inches tall because it made the values appear muddled. In addition, the models always seemed to be facing the same directions (almost never their left, strangely). Lastly, of all the hat-wearers in the back of the book, there's not one person in a cowboy hat! They have a guy in a space helmet, but no cowboy hat! C'mon. It's an iconic hat, is all. The kissing couple was informative. We get to see how two people interact. A very good facial reference...

Incredibly useful book for when you get tired of looking at your own goofy expressions as reference. The best thing is the variety of types of people presented, a far cry from trying to get expressions from the unlikely to be seen in real life stars and starlets of tv or movies.

I highly recommend this book as it has a myriad of expressions in different angles and such. Its great for studying expressions and getting some practice with perspective. I also recommend the other book he has that's infants-teens. That one is great too because it has other great tools such as age progression photos in the back.

Got this book for my husband who is an artist and he thinks it would be great for his work in drawing, painting and illustration.

It's a really cool book, but for me it's a bit glitchy. But as I said, still good!

Highly glitchy; crashes more often than it's worth.
