Walter Foster began writing self-help art instruction books in the 1920s. The books were first produced in his home in Laguna Beach, California, where he wrote, illustrated, and printed them himself. Walter Foster was truly a pioneer in making it possible for many people to improve their art skills easily and economically. Walter passed away in 1981, but he is fondly remembered for his warmth, dedication, and unique line of books.
