Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This systematic presentation illustrates the depiction of bones and muscles, both in detailed close-ups and in larger groups. It starts by discussing the proportions of a human adult and proceeds to define the principal terms used in describing anatomy. Subsequent illustrations depict the skull, bones, muscles, veins, and other aspects of the human figure.

In addition to captions, the images are complemented by extensive descriptions that explain bone and muscle placement and function. Nearly fifty finely executed full-page plates and numerous smaller drawings make this a rewarding browsing book as well as an excellent reference for artists.
