Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Stephen Rogers Peck's Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist remains unsurpassed as a manual for students. It includes sections on bones, muscles, surface anatomy, proportion, equilibrium, and locomotion. Other unique features are sections on the types of human physique, anatomy from birth to old age, an orientation on racial anatomy, and an analysis of facial expressions. The wealth of information offered by the Atlas ensures its place as a classic for the study of the human form.
Review Quote*"A very clear presentation. The schematic drawings are particularly useful in teaching introductory anatomy to students."--Terry Morrow, Texas Tech University
Review Quote*"I have used the book regularly for about 35 years and have found the mix of 'clinical' type renderings, clear 'muscle' charts, description and sectional graphic structural sketch pages to be excellent and to the point."--
Review Quote*"Very good illustrations/explanations--very helpful for students to understand such a complex system."--J.P. Manlapaz, North Virginia Community College
Biographical NoteThe late Stephen Rogers Peck was a lecturer in artistic anatomy at Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute, and a portrait painter and medical illustrator.
