For more than 75 years, Walter Foster Publishing has been providing how-to books to millions of art enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

Walter Foster was born in 1891 in Woodland Park, Colorado. In his younger years, he was known as an accomplished artist, an art instructor, and an art collector. In the 1920s, while running his own advertising agency, Walter began writing self-help art instruction books.

The books were first produced in his home in Laguna Beach, California. He wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped, and distributed them himself. In the 1960s, as his product line grew, he moved the operation to a large commercial facility, which allowed him to expand the company and achieve worldwide distribution.
