The Face: 
Our Human Story

This is a thoroughly engrossing, thematic study of the representation of the face on objects and in works of art from all cultures and throughout history. All images are taken from objects, prints and paintings held in the British Museum’s vast and varied collections. The book is arranged thematically, and each chapter begins with a brief introduction before depicting faces in various visually-led pairings and groupings.
