11 Kirby, Kate (Editor) Illustrator's Reference Manual: Children
Book Sales

1993 1555215653 / 9781555215651 Hardcover As New Near Fine 
small chip at the top inner corner of the rear panel o/w near fine. Each page is filled with small borderless photos of children doing different things and showing virtually every conceivable angle. ' It is difficult persuading children to sit still for long enough to capture a likeness. And child models are often unavailable and expensive. Illustrators, visualizers and artists must, therefore, look elsewhere for suitable reference. Most pictorial representations, however, only show the model from one viewpoint, thereby limiting the choice of pose, position, and angle. This book solves this problem with over 2,550 photographs of children, ranging in age from babies to young teenagers, and showing an exhaustive range of positions and poses, moods, and situations.' 020273
