"A valuable book that every serious art student will need."—M. Stephen Doherty, Editor-in-Chief, American Artist

"Visualizing Muscles is a unique and exciting approach for studying surface anatomy . . . . accomplished in a painstakingly precise and beautifully executed manner. . . . It offers a tremendous amount of accurate visual information, which helps one understand not only the form of the human figure, but also the changes in form that occur during movement. This book is a must for medical illustrators."—Gary P. Lees, Chairman and Director, Art as Applied to Medicine, Johns Hopkins University
