|Caricature is an age-old art form that uses
exaggeration to make a satirical or humerous point. It is, however, underpinned
by strong technical principles. Drawing Caricature explains those
principles through step-by-step instructions moving from observation to simple
aspects of drawing, and then to caricaturing the face feature by feature. It
explores the psychology of the artist and the subjects, and emphasizes that

picture. Packed with over 160 original caricatures and numerous exercises, it
is a unique book that will enable every artist to learm the art of caricature
