Ancient sculptures depicting Egyptian royalty, engravings by D#65533;rer, Botticelli's paintings of women, and abstract works are presented in full color and with the kind of details kids love. The book also teaches young readers how to paint a face, draw a cartoon, and create a face-themed collage. Young readers will learn about self-portraits, double portraits, and masks and challenge themselves with quizzes, puzzles, and optical illusions. Along the way they'll develop an understanding of how and why artists continue to celebrate the human face.
