The good folks at Titan Books have released a beautiful facsimile edition of Andrew Loomis' highly-sought-after instructional drawing book, Drawing the Head and Hands. Earlier this year Titan released Loomis' Figure Drawing For All It's Worth, which I reviewed here.
Before Titan began publishing facsimile editions of Loomis's book, used copies would sell for $100 or more, depending on the condition. A lot of artists I know tell me that Loomis's books (and also Jack Hamm's drawing books) are the best instructional drawing books for teaching the human form. Amazon.com is selling it for $26.37.
After the jump, some sample pages.
Buy Drawing the Head and Hands on Amazon.
