Author Charles Earl Bradbury (1888-1967) takes a two-part approach in this book. The first part features a self-contained treatment of the bones of the skeleton and how they relate to the body's outline and muscle masses. The second focuses on muscles and their actions, showing how they are constructed and how they look in the human form. Male and female structures are compared and contrasted throughout the text. Designed specifically for classroom use, this volume is also a priceless reference.
These realistic and meticulously accurate drawings illustrate form as well as function, offering artists a mastery of anatomy through careful, knowledgeable articulation of the muscles and bones beneath the skin. Each image appears with an identifying caption, and this new edition offers the convenience of a CD-ROM that includes every illustration from the book. In addition to its value as a resource for practicing artists, this beautiful browsing book will captivate anyone who has an interest in the human body.
Four major sections constitute the book, with studies of the trunk, the head and neck, the upper limb, and the lower limb. Each section features full coverage of the skeleton, the muscles, and their surface forms. The emphasis throughout is on relating anatomical structure to the actual surface appearance of the body, both at rest and in motion. Sixty-four exceptionally clear and instructive illustrations include diagrams of skeleton and muscle structure, as well as superb examples of figure drawing.
This affordably priced and easy-to-reference manual represents an invaluable addition to the library of every artist — student and professional.
For more than forty years, this book has been recognized as the most thorough reference work on art anatomy in the world. Now, it recommends itself even more strongly to the serious artist as an important study aid. Among its features are: (1) Clear, systematic presentation, taking the student step by step from the simpler skeletal drawings at the beginning to the more complicated body-in-action sketches at the end. (2) The juxtaposition of anatomical drawings and life photographs, making it easy to compare the inner structure of the body with its outer form. (3) Cross-section drawings that give the artist a thorough understanding of the relation of the muscles to each other, to the bone structure, and to the internal organs of the body. (4) Anatomical action drawings that reveal the interplay of muscles and skeleton in different positions. (5) The comparative proportions of the male, female, child, and adolescent. (6) A supplementary text on important features of each anatomical position, including the action of the muscles and their origin.

This story follows T. Buddy as he struggles to balance school, girls, and fun in the form of practical jokes but particularly focuses on T. Buddy’s relationship with Johnna, the girl of his dreams; his relationship with his older sister and sometime nemesis, Cathy; his relationship with his fun-loving dad; and his relationship with the Gutter Gang as they enjoy junior high school life, which includes going to and escaping school dances, riding around the neighborhood, and generally causing mischief—all the while trying to avoid getting caught by the local law enforcement.
