The Figure Artist's Book of Anatomical Landmarks: Here's the Order Form!

It's finished! After hours of proofing, re-proofing, uploading, re-uploading, fretting, panicking and just plain waiting, my 375 crisp, clean copies of The Figure Artist's Book of Anatomical Landmarks are back from the printer! And they may now be purchased via check, money order or with a credit card using the link below.

The Figure Artist's Book of Anatomical Landmarks is $21.95 + 2.55 shipping and handling, if shipped within the continental US. Shipping rates on overseas book orders vary. Please email me directly at kristin@gm-studio.com for shipping rates if you are ordering from outside the continental US. More information about the book can be found below.



If you'd like to pay by check or money order, please contact me directly at kristin@gm-studio.com for instructions. And if you'd like your book signed, use this email address to let me know!

The Figure Artist's Book of Anatomical Landmarks is a quick reference guide to help the artist identify and understand the lumps, bumps, creases and depressions on the human body. Its clear, concise text and dozens of labeled photographs are organized by body region for handy reference. Its small size and soft cover make it convenient and portable, whether keeping it on your drawing table or taking it along to life drawing sessions. It is 7" x 7", 48 pages, black and white, with a soft cover. This book is best used in conjunction with more traditional anatomy books, as it is not a book of anatomical diagrams. It's consists primarily of figure photos with the anatomical surface landmarks labeled and accompanying descriptions of each, much like those seen on this blog. Here are two sample spreads, which are indicative of just about every page in the book.




 Thank you for your order! I am grateful and humbled by your support!

  7. Thank you for creating such a valuable resource! I have found the diagrams on your blog to be among the most helpful and useful of all the anatomy resources I've studied.

    I have a question about the content of your book. I see that in your sample sheets above you have labeled the muscles and landmarks rather than outlining them (as in this blog post about the forearm). Do you also use this style of outlined diagrams in the book? I find them by far the most helpful for learning how to identify the various muscles and their contexts.

    Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words! It makes me very happy to know that the site has been useful and helpful to you.

      Alas, there are no diagrams in my book with outlined muscles like those on the blog. I wanted the book to be more of a quick reference guide. I will, however, be using the images from the book in future posts, and I will outline all the muscles in those posts.

      I would like to eventually publish an expanded version of the book using the outlined muscles diagrams that I make for the blog. This may take awhile, though.

      Thanks again very much for your kind comments!

    2. Thanks for the quick response!

      You are very generous to offer so much of this information for free. I hope this has helped you to gain a wide audience. I certainly have been spreading the word among my friends.

      Looking forward to future material with the outlined diagrams, and to the expanded version of the book!

      Thanks and take care!

  8. Can you ship to book to Taiwan(in Asia)?
    How about the shipping fee?
    Thanks
    Your book is really helpful, not only to artist, but also for my practice in treatment.

    1. Thank you very much for your interest! It looks like it would cost about $12.15 to ship the book to Taiwan. Let's make it an even $34 for the book and shipping, if that would work for you. (And if you are still interested.) Please let me know what form of payment would work best for you. I can take a credit card via PayPal. If you'd like to contact me directly, my email address is kristin@gm-studio.com. This is also the address you'd need to use for a PayPal transaction.
      Thank you again for your interest!
