it was amazing
bookshelves: art, instructional, favorites

Uniquely instructive ... I still remember such gems as the morphology of the lower back and buttocks resembling the wings of a butterfly or the breast and its underlying pectoral muscle looking like commas on their sides. The illustrations are strangely stylized and gorgeous. Also, hysterical and weird photographs of people making screwey faces, the most disturbing of which being the countenance of someone at the moment of their death. Somehow more frightening in a book than in real life.
