Artistic Posing























The Fairburn System of Visual Reference, UK, 1978.

Back in the days before the interweb and Photoshop, designers and artists that couldn't afford a full-time life model used reference books such as the series by Fairburn. I'm sure it was very useful but some of the poses, hairstyles and fashions clearly serve no purpose other than giving the photographer a good laugh.
