I Read
Very useful for any artist wishing to do figure drawing.

This book covers anatomy pictorially very thoroughly, however I feel it would have benefited from descriptive passage explaining the workings and what one is viewing.

I was a bit unsure on the arm proportions given for males, but I'm sure this is anatomically correct as the author has clearly spent much time studying the subject.

There could have perhaps been a bit more on the young and old, but I was pleased that it included these variants.

this book has some of the most awesome line drawings i have ever seen. it is an instructional book for learning how to draw human anatomy. there are several editions and i cannot vouch for the the newer versions, but this older edition is letter-pressed and beautiful.

Shelves: art
comprehensive in scope and convenient in size (a tad bigger than a half divided sheet of paper). excellent coloring and practice book but not error-free
10-12 years ago as a kid with little money in my pocket I bought this book.
