Michel Lauricella is an internationally renowned expert in anatomy. Lauricella has spent time at many of Paris' most prestigious art schools, first as a student and then, for the past two decades, as an anatomy instructor. The Morpho: Anatomy for Artists series comprises thousands of Lauricella's masterful illustrations and diagrams, covering areas from the simplified human form in motion to the smallest details of musculature, flesh, bone, and cartilage.
As an experienced instructor and figure artist, Lauricella offers excellent advice about specific issues in rendering various parts of the body. This pocket-sized, 95-page handbook features figures with highly developed muscles. These bodybuilder types are common in cartooning and superhero movies, so contemporary artists will appreciate the repertoire of shapes and poses covered in this slim volume.
With the working artist in mind, the publisher of the Morpho series has selected a Smyth-sewn binding for all of the smaller Anatomy Handbooks. As you can see in our product photos, the binding is both beautiful and practical—these little books open completely flat at every page, so you can easily refer to them while you draw.
