Several decades ago when this book was written it would be certainly the greatest artist anatomy guide for its accurate illustration and in-depth analysis of classic works. But in present days it seems a little bit outdated for the poor photo quality and insufficient points of view. Several recently published books would be nice such as Human Anatomy for Artists: The Elements of Form by Eliot Goldfinger, which contains highly detailed interpretation of the human form, and Anatomy for the Artist by Sarah Simblet with very high quality photos of representative models. However, if you are a beginner artist on a budget, this book is more than enough for you to have a basic understanding of human anatomy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

One of the best anatomy books out there
This is definitely one of the best anatomy books ever. It provides an in-depth look at the human body, providing numerous and detailed drawings of the skeletal and muscular systems. This book has helped me tremendously to understand the structure of the human body, and how to draw people realistically and accurately. This book gives references for virtually every aspect of the human form, as well as a good selection of drawings from the masters, such as Michelangelo and Da Vinci. I highly reccomend this book to anybody who wants to seriously study artistic anatomy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
