This book is specifically aimed at artists and fashion designers.
Summary Of The Book
A good understanding of the human anatomy is an essential asset for students of art and aspiring fashion designers. With this kind of target readership in mind, the author has just concentrated on the visuals and kept verbal descriptions at a minimum.
Usually, books on anatomy can be bulky and too theoretical and difficult to understand. A lot of pages might be devoted to detailed textual descriptions of bone structures, muscles, and tendons. Digging through the text to arrive at a good physical understanding of form and shape can be challenging.
This book eliminates this difficulty by keeping the text to a minimum and concentrating on the visuals. The book contains illustrative drawings and figures to convey everything through pictures. Labeling and description are used only when necessary.
A good understanding of anatomy helps in bringing out the beauty of the human form. The bone structure, which is the framework and gives shape to the body, and the muscles and tendons that control movement, are the basic building blocks that bring out the grace, beauty, and fluidity of the human body.
Even when the artist has a live model as a reference, a deep understanding of the inner framework and working of the body enhances the artistic interpretation of the model. To enable this understanding, the author has used numerous illustrations to convey anatomical concepts.
