egogrif, September 27, 2010 (view all comments by egogrif)
I keep this book among my favorite art reference books. It is filled with dramatic black and white illustrations that provide as much insight into the movement and attitude of animals as it does anatomy. It is not a drawing book for beginners. Complex forms are not broken down into their basic shapes, nor does it take you step-by-step on which line you should draw next. What it does do is provide anatomical transparency, layering images of bone over muscle to better show why each animal moves and looks as it does. It separates the animals by type - cats, bears, rodents, etc - and I find that even if I need to draw a specific critter not shown, there is at least one close relative of it shown in this book, which is usually enough to get me started. It is a slender but indispensible resource!
