Pre-Order The Book Now!

July 21st, 2011 | Posted in News

Ordering is now online for my book, The Mad Art of Caricature! The book will ship in September, but by popular demand pre-ordering is now underway. Here are your ordering options:

  • Signed book: $24.95
  • Signed book plus sketch of Alfred: $39.95
  • Signed book plus random original caricature art* from the book: $49.95
  • Signed book plus sketch of Alfred and random original caricature art*: $59.95

Shipping & handling:

  • $5.00 in the U.S
  • $10.00 for Canada
  • $15 for any other country via US Postal International Flat Rate.

* Regarding the original art option- these are celebrity caricature drawings that appear in the book. Most are former “Sketch of the Week” pencil drawings, which I scanned in and added digital grayscale to for print. I have exactly 100 of these, and they are sure to sell out quickly. This option goes to the first 100 people that choose it, and then I will remove the option from the ordering menu. If I get flooded with orders for the original art option and don’t get it removed in time to prevent over 100 orders I will issue a refund for that $25 with my apologies to those who ordered it too late.

Payments are processed through PayPal, where you can pay with either your PayPal account or via credit card.

    Hi Tom

    I very interested in buying the book! What kind of tutorials does it contain? Those which is already available on your website or others and more comprehensive tutorials?? 🙂

    Kind regards

    • Tom says:

      The tutorials on the blog are incorporated into the book, but expanded upon and there are chapters dealing with the other features of the face, other things like the neck and shoulders, posture, drawing the different sexes, specifics on live drawing techniques, doing caricature for publication and for MAD, etc.

    Ahhhh, The Tom Richmond “how to” caricature book? Just a note; You were worried that because of the last book sales, this one wouldn’t fly! Then I said: yes it would cause you would have to put a “Richmond cartoon spin” on this book! UNLIKE any other caricature/cartoon/drawing book in print TODAY! I am at the 20 comment mark in your blog, & people love it & they didn’t even get it yet! I know you’re a humble man Tom, but hopefully the response you receive from the release of YOUR book will show you how remarkable your work is to others! You are an inspiration to those of us that just love the world of illustration & wish we could be a part of the “Rockwell” Drucker, Davis era! You have done that Tom! Be proud of yourself, we are!

  22. Thomas Newbury says:

    Well done and congratulations Tom…I’ve been a fan for a relatively short time but of all the caricaturists that I researched online while trying to learn this noble and challenging, (go on then…show me your stuff those that scoff) art-form you were the one that illuminated, instructed and inspired me with you wisdom, passion and knowledge of the craft. I’ve been looking forward to having a hard copy for a while and here it is. You are an inspiration Mr Richmond, more power to your nibs, brushes and imagination. Regards Thomas…
