In this 1935 drawing manual L.A. Doust has stern advice for the aspiring fashion and advertising illustrator. He is particularly keen on getting to grips with types – the ‘healthy happy girl in Fig. 1 is a type constantly in demand’, as is the less wholesome girl in Fig 3., ‘a complete reversal of type, yet just as attractive, and more suitable for certain commodities’.
‘The out-of-door man, the aristocratic club man, the healthy baby, the healthy old man. These four types must be mastered.’
