Anatomy Books

Happy New Year Everyone!
I'm back from my holiday vacation and beginning work on a couple of new webisodes for January. In the meantime, I thought I'd answer another question I've received by email. A number of people were curious which anatomy books I was referring to in Webisode 1, Part 2. They were "Artistic Anatomy" by Dr. Paul Richer and "Human Anatomy for Artists" by Eliot Goldfinger. While I do refer to other anatomy books, these two are what I rely on most often. Goldfinger's book is most valuable to me as an encyclopedia of anatomy. If I want to identify something quickly I always turn there first. Richer's book is where I look when I want to see the various anatomic components beautifully integrated in the French Academic tradition. Richer's plates are all beautiful and inspiring. Together, these books answer most of my anatomy questions.

Please note: I've installed links to these books through the Amazon associates program. For those of you who don't know, this means that if you link through my blog to purchase these books (or anything else at Amazon), a small percentage of the sale comes to me (at no additional cost to you). I felt a little weird just sneaking this in the blog so I wanted to be upfront about it. If you have an interest in supporting this blog and the webisodes this would be an easy, free way to do it (that is, if you were going to buy stuff at Amazon anyway). If not, that's totally fine--the webisodes will stay free because...well...I enjoy making them so much!

Take Care,


  1. Thank you for sharing the book titles.

  2. Thanks for the titles and link. I certainly have no problem supporting your work on the blog in this way.

  3. Thanks so much for the webisodes! They are fantastic. Looking forward to the next one.
