This manual contains over 5500 photographs of men and women in a wide range of poses, both clothed and unclothed. Modelled by professional actors, each pose is naturally and expressively represented. From running, standing, sitting and lying down, to carrying, reaching, pushing and pulling, the book has an image to satisfy most needs. When live models are unavailable or unaffordable, illustrators and artists must look elsewhere for a suitable figure reference. Whether it's a boxer taking a punch, a waitress carrying an overloaded tray or a chauffeur opening a car door, there are occasions where a live reference is not available. Each pose is photographed from 24 standard angles, giving a true representation of the figure and allowing figures to be accurately combined in groups. For professional illustrators, amateur artists and anyone who needs an instant figure reference, the book should be a useful aid for every kind of figure drawing.
