-Rick Baker, whose apes have conquered the screen in Greystoke, Congo, and Gorillas in the Mist

These masters and eight other specialists-including today's hottest talents, such as Bob (Hellraiser), Keen, Kevin (Child's Play) Yagher, and Tony (Addams Family Values) Gardner-offer details looks at the art and craft of movie makeup.
