Format: Paperback
Recommended text for any figure drawing class, ages 14 to adult. Gives the artist many excellent samples of all mediums. The chapters devoted to basic anatomy are easy to understand and a pleasure to tackle for any ability level. Drawing is broken down into Four well illustrated categories : Structure, Anatomy(skeletal and muscular), Design, and Expression. A "best buy"!

Format: Paperback
Online I did some research to see what books art schools and classes are using this one as well as a few others kept coming up! I am self taught due to time constraints, but I feel that though I didn't have a professor standing over me giving me advice, I could still gain a decent amount of information just by reading and applying the things learned in my drawing. The suggested exercises are invaluable and will take a while if properly done. I suggest using this book only after getting a basic understanding of anatomy, even though this book covers anatomy. Get a strictly anatomy book like Peck's, Richer's, or Goldfinger.

This book is written so wonderfully that it has giving me a new appreciation for the art of figure drawing and i have been figure drawing since the seventies. I wish i was smart enough to read this book when it first came out, but i am smart enough now to recommend it to with a five star rating. It is fantastic

I have enjoyed this hard back book. I bought the older addition to save on money; and consider this as a wise decision.
