Product Details

Praise

“This volume is useful not only for the excellent information and guidance Osti (Univ. of the Arts, Philadelphia) provides but also for the manner in which he presents the information. His presentation of the fundamentals is simple but elegant, and the visuals, examples, and exercises harmoniously supplement the information. Readers can flip to just what they need or study the work as a whole, a flexibility that makes the book valuable as both a textbook and a reference tool. Osti’s skills as an artist and instructor are abundantly clear throughout the book, and the many excellent illustrations showcase his credentials well. The market is saturated with books on figure drawing, but human anatomy titles are less numerous, and many are dated. Sarah Simblet’s Anatomy for the Artist (2001) and Valerie Winslow’s Classic Human Anatomy in Motion: The Artist’s Guide to the Dynamics of Figure Drawing (2015) are excellent, but what sets Osti’s title apart is its simplicity and the clarity of its prose.”
