An Atlas of Animal Anatomy for Artists
Here are 288 remarkably lifelike drawings of animals. So detailed and so accurate are these drawings that this book has long been a classic work of its kind. The animals are shown in three ways: external full views and dozens of details (paws, head, eyes, legs, etc.); beneath-the-skin drawings of musculature and of the positions and insertions of each muscle; and skeleton drawings of the bone structures that support and determine surface contours and configurations. In addition, special cross-sections dissect those portions of the animal-such as the head and limbs-that are most important to the artist. Authors Ellenberger-Dittrich-Baum (151 pages)
