A Complete Guide to the Human Body for Artists and Students
Chris Joseph - All books by this author
Based on Gray’s Anatomy, the classic reference volume used for more than a century by medical students around the world, Pocket Anatomy offers a brand-new approach to the study of human body structure. Featuring all the fine illustrations found in the original, this new book presents a fresher, more accessible text that explains in lay terms exactly how the hip bone is connected to the thigh bone. Although it possesses the reliability and authority of a technical manual, Pocket Anatomy is organized so that non-specialist readers can understand both text and illustrations. Each bone joint and muscular group is shown from a variety of angles and poses, allowing readers to get a full understanding of its function. Not only medical students, but artists and art students will find Pocket Anatomy an invaluable and visually appealing reference source. Printed in full color, it presents 350 illustrations.
From the reviews:
