Walter T. Foster was an American entrepreneur, artist, art instructor, writer, editor and publisher. The Walter Foster Publishing Company’s line of low-cost art manuals were widely distributed to art stores, often displayed in a metal rack specially made for Foster’s oversized art books. While residing in Laguna Beach, California, Foster owned and operated an advertising agency, where he worked with many local artists and illustrators. Through his friends in the art community, he discovered many artists who wanted to teach art and write books. In response, Foster started a publishing company in his home, where he wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped and distributed the books himself. An artist in his own right, Foster created the company’s first title, How to Draw, which sold more than one million copies and is still in print today. Foster died in 1981 at the age of 90, his books are still loved and used today.
