About the Author
Frank H. Netter was born in New York City in 1906. He studied art at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter’s notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles and textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide. Icon Learning Systems acquired the Netter Collection in July 2000 and continued to update Dr. Netter’s original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. In 2005, Elsevier Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier Inc.
Dr. Netter’s works are among the finest examples of the use of illustration in the teaching of medical concepts. The 13-book Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy, first published in 1989, presents the anatomic paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 16 languages, it is the anatomy atlas of choice among medical and health professions students the world over.
The Netter illustrations are appreciated not only for their aesthetic qualities, but, more importantly, for their intellectual content. As Dr. Netter wrote in 1949 “clarification of a subject is the aim and goal of illustration. No matter how beautifully painted, how delicately and subtly rendered a subject may be, it is of little value as a medical illustration if it does not serve to make clear some medical point. Dr. Netter’s planning, conception, point of view, and approach are what inform his paintings and what make them so intellectually valuable.
Frank H. Netter, MD, physician and artist, died in 1991.

I highly recommend this as the first line atlas that you get. You can find supplemental information on the web, or add another atlas to the collection if you feel you need one. This will be the best one to start with though.
I recently undertook a 10-credit A&P intensive in 8 weeks, and without a single doubt, this book was my main resource for all of the anatomy practicals.
Our textbook was inadequate - it would have partial and very select views of anything, and didn't cover half of what we had to learn. Among the Atlases that we had on hand, I first found the 5th edition of this book and even though it wasn't photographic, I really appreciated that it was so detailed and offered so many variations on the same area. You can go from skeleton to muscle, nerves, or check out diagnostic imaging views like X-Rays or other scans. I didn't feel that, given the detailed variety here, I was missing anything by not having photos. I checked this newest edition out from my library and was elated to see that just about all the gaps from Dr. Netter's work have been filled by digital rendering that strikes a balance between the accuracy I expect from computers but also the aesthetic I expect from the overall Atlas. I'm sure they're trying hard to find a new way to make an edition given that this is so complete - but I welcome the result.
I bought this book after the class were over (I did well) to be a TA for the class throughout the year. With the easy organization of the book, I was able to flag all the areas I knew students would have questions about and was able to absolutely enrich their studying by offering new ways to look at and locate features.
This book is currently being sold at a great price. Wouldn't miss it if you're in the market. Only improvement I'd suggest for future editions would be to have the option of a spiral binding with water resistant/alcohol-fast paper so that it could live in the cadaver room. The book still lays flat enough without much manipulation, but being pressed flat puts undue stress on the current binding.

For my study of anatomy I used this in conjecture with Gray's Anatomy and Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy - both being fantastic textbooks. This is probably the best atlas available and an essential for anyone who is studying to become any health care professional.
The only downside is the Student Consult. It is clear (like with most medical textbooks that offer it) that it was just an afterthought. However, on a positive note, the Netter 3D interactive Map is pretty useful. You get 30 day free trial after which you have to pay. Just use the trial and consider if it is something that you would want to invest in. It was worth it for me, as I am a visual learner and is particularly useful for complicated structures such as the bones of the skull.
This volume is strictly an atlas, which enables one to find intimate details very quickly, without having to wade through any text. All in all, a very impressive work.
They also provide you with websites you could use for free (although only for a year). They bring in the clinical aspect of anatomy. I'd definitely recommend you buy this!
This just has pretty pictures
