'500 Portraits' by The Phaidon Press. Although it's not an instruction manual, it is a beautiful book that should give you plenty of inspiration.

Thank you! Is it "500 Self-Portraits"? This book was what I was able to find:

If you're looking for how-to books, I'd recommend anything by Lee Hammond. Her best known is probably How to Draw Lifelike Portraits from Photographs. She used to work primarily in pencil and colored pencil. I think recently her books have expanded into acrylics.

Another favorite is Ann Kullberg. My favorite is Colored Pencil Portraits: Step-By-Step.

I've participated in workshops from both of these talented ladies.

I'll try to remember to make a list of some of my other favorites when I go upstairs to my art room later tonight.

I am envious that you have taken workshops with these ladies. I have seen videos on www.artistsnetwork.com by Lee Hammond and would have loved to have been there in person. I live in the boonies and we rarely get this caliber of an art workshop. I am teaching myself to do portraits from books Harley Brown is one I have just found on a inter-library loan and I have watched both of Lee's videos on artistsnetwork which were very helpful.
