Anatomy for the Artist by Sarah Simblet & John Davis
Any artist at any stage can use this reference book over and over.
This is a beautiful photo-reference book and will round out a collection of anatomy books for the serious student. The poses, lighting and photography are excellent with a few semi-transparent overlays of skeleton and muscles. This is not a foundational text and does not try to contain all knowledge related to anatomy and the human figure. Great for model sketching and study, mapping muscle groups, skeletal strength, balance and relationships between external appearance and internal structure.
Some of the most beautifully rendered illustrations I’ve seen. An excellent reference for all stages of figure study.
