    "Best Human Anatomy Book I've seen yet!" - Cristopher Lincoln, 12 February 2021
    " This book has really amazing high quality photos side by side with anatomical drawings, contour lines, and planar forms overlaid on top of them. Makes it very easy to understand all the anatomical forms of the figure from every angle. There are good comparisons of male and female skeletons, joint mechanics, and some overweight and age references as well. With the bulk of the book showing both male and female figure. Warning though the book is 100% nude photos, so if that kind of thing bothers you or your giving it as a gift make sure their mature enough to deal with the subject matter. I'd recommended this book to any artists working with the human figure in any medium both traditional and digital. "
