Many years ago I remember working with a DP who gave the best boy on set a great book that was solely on the art of lighting faces. I have been searching the web to see if I can find this book or one similar to share with some of the technicians I work with. Though I have not had much luck.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Pete.

There are many books on stills photography that are devoted to portrait lighting. I'm not sure how relevant they would be to movie work, but every camera store seems to carry a wide selection.

Lighting for Television and Film by G Millerson has some pages on corrective lighting as well as a wealth of other useful information.
