a MUST-HAVE for all artists

This is the most classical,most essential anatomy book for artists that has ever been created.And yet nobody can compete with BAMMES.If you have that book feel secure-you have the tools-practice is the rest.


I'm teacher of Artistic Anatomy in Seville (Spain), and I would like to found an Spanish or English translatión of this book, because I have a germany edition (And I don't Know a word in this language). It seems a complete book, both text and images. So if you may give me some information about how I can get it in Spanish (I believe that not exist), or in English (in second place more easy for me), I would thanks you send me the way.

An essential reference for beginners to experts.

Bammes has put together one of the greatest collections of figure drawings in this book. Whether you're just beginning to tackle the problems of life drawing or you're an expert at translating the human anatomy to paper, this book should be positioned next to your sketching pads at all times. Not only does Bammes explain how artists might attack a problem, he uses illustrations from variety of sources. This is especially valuable because while readers see the artists solutions, many varieties of styles and mediums are represented. Drawings include simple gestural figure composed of a few graphite marks to complex figures with shadings and highlights. Because this is such a big thick book, readers can be sure that the human figure is explored from almost every angles. The variety of styles may also serve as points of inspiration. The Artist's Guide to Human Anatomy is not quite the artists' bible, but it's just as essential.
