great book but limited
on 4 December 2011
Most of the book is the anatomy of the horse, dog, cats(lion) and cows These are very detailed plates and show muscle and skeleton. The end of the book is a mish mash of collected plates detailing various animals e,g, bat, monkey but these are only single page plates. Overall very good for the artist and animator but the book is a bit too specialised on just a few animals, especially the horse. If you produce game art then this will be of use.
This is pretty much an exercise in making money for the publisher, recycling old anatomy plates and calling it an art reference book. You may be able to find this type of plate on the internet these days. Perhaps a better idea for the publisher would have been to understand the needs of the artist and then produce new work, rather than just recycling old plates.
All that being said you may find it handy on the shelf......
