Faces: Illustrated Limericks Portraying People You May Know
Combining his love of writing, drawing, and psychology, author Carl Pickhardt Ph.D. has created his eighth book of illustrated psychology, FACES, to present a picture gallery of one hundred fictional individuals. Every portrait personifies some human characteristic that the limerick (five-line verse) about each subject further describes – sometimes to humorous, sometimes to serious effect. For example, there are portraits of The Man Who Was Chronically Late, The Woman Who Wanted To Please, and many others. Thus the book of male and female subjects becomes a visual and verbal commentary about human nature that both pleases the eye and provokes the mind to thought.
