Atlas Of Human Anantomy

I’ve studied out of this book for about a month; along with Andrew Loomis’s Figure Drawing for all its worth and David K. Rubins book on the figure. I must say this is one of the best anatomy books I’ve used. Inside this book you have sharp, great, clear photos and named description’s of the bones and muscles; followed by simplified drawings and shapes, to help you remember  the bones and their form;  in separate sections.

In the next section of the book they have nice b/w photos of nude models to help you train your eyes for surface landmarks on the body. There is also sections on Proportions, comparisons of body parts and alignment, varieties of physiques, male and female proportion in 7 life periods, racial types as well as facial expressions.

Overall I give this book 5 stars, as it was well planned out, informative and easy to follow. If you don’t have this book you should really consider adding it to your figure and anatomy section.
