Artist's Model by John Everard, F.I.B.P.

John Everard, Artist's Model Plate 73

In 1951 The Bodley Head, London published a book of photographs by John Everard, F.I.B.P., which Charles Simpson in an introduction compares favorably to the work of Eadweard Muybridge. Then he goes on to point out that he asked John Everard if he was familiar withn Muybridge's work and Simpson says he never heard of him.

The book is divided into several sections, the first and largest section is a series of photographs of models with one large dramatically lit photograph and twelve smaller evenly lit photographs of the model from 360 degrees.

Everard himself in a forward to the book says the idea for the book came about because his daughter Maureen complained about the difficulty in finding models when she was a student in art school. The book, he says, "caters to the need of the young student in art, the professional artist, the sculptor an perhaps even more than anyone else the commercial artist and layout man."
