Atlas of Foreshortening: The Human Figure in Deep Perspective: 2nd Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique visual encyclopedia for artists and illustrators The representation of the human body in deep perspective (foreshortened) is one of the most challenging tasks for any artist or illustrator. This outstanding photographic reference-the only one of its kind-captures the male and female nude in eighty-four different groups of foreshortened poses. The new edition features over 650 new, high-quality photographs that include both detail shots and full-body photographs. Medical and surgical positions are also featured, making the Atlas an invaluable resource for those working in the medical field as well as in fine art, graphic design, or animation.

Book News Annotation:

Artist John Cody presents the second edition of this photographic reference text for illustrators, fine artists, and animators. The text contains over 530 b&w photographs, all newly shot using new models for this second edition. The photographs are grouped into one section of over 150 pages of a female model, and a second section of more than 150 pages of a male model, which present a variety of foreshortened views of the human figure. In the new edition, each of the two sections begins with non-foreshortened views as a standard of comparison, and each section now includes isolated views of foreshortened arms and hands.
