This superb art manual is the best guide available on a subject that has fascinated artists for centuries: the human body. From the entire skeleton and the joints in and out of motion to all the muscles and even facial characteristics, every body part appears in close-up and from varying perspectives.
Accompanying the images are brief discussions of male and female anatomical construction, explaining precisely the articulations and movement of the foot, the arm, the trunk, the spinal column, and the skull. In many cases, two sketches appear side by side: one just lightly traced in, and marked with letters to show how proportions and perspective were figured, and another fully finished drawing.
Without the indispensable information contained on these illuminating pages, painters cannot observe with understanding all the attitudes, positions, and movements of which the body is capable—and produce a truly magnificent work of art. Features a new concealed spiral that keeps the book open as you work!

He said to me "Grandpa these are just like my dinosaur books only about people. Oct 24, Sarah rated it it was amazing. I have this book in both the large A3 size and the smaller size. It offers very clear images of anatomy, bone structure, muscles, ect, and is invaluable as a resource for me when I want to research how the body works for a new painting.
Jan 19, Lucy rated it it was amazing. Fantastic for improving on sketching difficult parts of the body, like hands and feet. Provides some complex examples but talks you through them, with beautiful artwork throughout. Oct 23, J. Keely rated it it was amazing Shelves: art , non-fiction , reviewed. This is less a book than a tome of knowledge; and like any good tome, it will take a long, long time to decipher all the meaning in the strange words and diagrams. Aug 29, Derek olsen rated it it was amazing.
Great reference book. Aug 19, Hayley rated it really liked it. I just finished it for the same week and I really enjoyed it. I loved how at first the story lines didn't seem to have anything to do with each other but slowly details were revealed to show how they are all connected.
Jul 01, Ottilee B. I've had this book a long time. It is a really good art book that shows the musculature and how the muscles move in both the male and female form. Excellent drawings in differing positions: using your imagination you can see exactly how the muscles react to each other. Keep in mind these are drawings and NOT actual anatomy. They may not be as precise as you'd like!
They are, however, an excellent starting point. Dec 19, Christine Otis rated it it was amazing. Every artist should have this book. It's great for someone wanting to know the human form and how to draw it.
Most artists, and some non-artists, that I know have this book on their shelves. It's very accessible and makes drawing the form less overwhelming. I know it eliminated my fears of drawing the human form as it did for my non-artist friends. It's one of the better art book to have and share.

A good book, when you need to reference anything about the body. Jul 08, Ashley Crago rated it it was amazing. Jan 24, John rated it really liked it Shelves: anatomy , art. A good reference. Definately not one I would pick as a sole resoucre, but I nice supplement for instruction. I tend to be picky with the anatomy books I choose for teaching children.
Jun 27, Mii rated it it was amazing. This book was a great read! Dec 11, Minitrinny rated it it was ok. I found this book interesting but a bit to confusing at times. Oct 29, Susie Mathews rated it it was amazing. Wonderful reference for figure drawing students. Helped me see the volume of the model. Jul 05, Overlord rated it it was amazing.
This has to be one of the best anatomical books for artists out there. I learned a great deal, and it's an amazing guide while practicing figure drawing. Big, lumbrous volume. Wish it were as useful as it is heavy. Apr 07, Enemyrain26 rated it it was amazing.
Oct 16, Inki Black rated it it was amazing. This is a great reference book for the body. The illustration is absolutely gorgeous and extremely detailed and accurate. Jun 03, Luis Fernando rated it it was amazing. Good book. Sep 25, F.
