The author of the 20th anniversary Calla Edition of the phenomenal bestseller Dinotopia, John Gurney is a master at bringing perspective realism and scientific accuracy to his artwork. Mr. Gurney is also a huge admirer of Dover's line of art instruction books and has graciously compiled a list of his ten favorite titles, which includes An Atlas of Animal Anatomy for Artists. Here is what he had to say:
"This is a useful reference book, dominated by large and carefully drawn plates. The animal kingdom is represented by a small number of familiar domesticated mammals: horse, dog, cow, and goat, together with a lion. Each animal is shown in neutral poses in side, top, and front views, with skeletal and muscular dissections for comparison."
