A suprisingly disapointing purchase
on 4 November 2014
This book got such a good review on line that I thought it would augment my trusty Anatomy for Artists by Sarah Simblet, but I really don't recommend this book it if you are hoping to use it to help with accuracy in your figure drawings. It is very old fashioned and more like a medical text book. There are pictures on every part of the body, but they are very small and formal. The artist cannot glean very much at all from these images I doubt the book it will teach me very much, partly because of the tiny images as I've explained, but also because the inaccessibility of the information means I'm not inclined to pick it up. The most instructive photograph is the one on the front, though there is a very good "hand" section at the back of the book. Though at 2 pages, it cannot make up for the a whole book's worth of shortcomings. I didn't find this a satisfying purchase and will look for something else to complement the Simblet book, which is great for figure drawing.
