a hidden treasure: The highest authority in the CLASSICAL TRADITION
By Bruce R. Bain
Copyright 1951? Wow, what a stimulating discovery, and what fun! Besides the skeletal and musculature illustrations, “Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist” is full of Peck’s own drawings of basic anatomical features. These are not just the “final” drawings, like the master prints in Hale, but the beginning “rough sketches”. I find this delightful because every beginner needs some inspirational guidance in drawing’s first steps. A simple rough sketch of a nose, with shading; or bones drawn as a simple hinge joint, an arm or leg…. Peck’s general reduction of the human figure to basic shapes is of inestimable help. The reader may just find himself saying, “Hey, I can do THAT!!!” And that is the wonderful thing about PECK’s book.
Peck has impeccable credentials and must be compared to Robert Beverly Hale. Peck’s is not merely an alternate duplication of the same material Hale covers. There is a ‘personal’ touch in Peck; but the problem with any/all anatomy books, for beginners, is that they are simply intimidating, in their detail, their precision, their absolute realism. PECK overcomes this anatomical intimidation. I would venture that PECK ought to be included in at least the first several “drawing” books that one acquires. Sometimes it seems that several pages offer more practical instruction to a new student than entire chapters in the books coming out in recent years with gimmicky titles.
“Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist,” in combination with any beginning book on figure drawing is a must. With Famous Artist’s School, Willy Pogany, Walt Reed, Jack Hamm, Viktor Perard and similar instruction, any ……………….
book-buyer / beginning artist will find themselves advancing steadily. I rate this in the top 4 of figure drawing books for the beginner.
The chapter on “Distinctions of Age, Sex, And Race” is highly useful. PECK may be in danger of getting shoved aside with time and the publication of new pablum texts containing nothing new or vital; but PECK has written a timeless text that commands respect. CARPE DIEM [Seize the day!] I rate this book a very deserved 5 stars*

Very well done. An excellent reference for the artist.
By Steven B
This anatomy book covers areas of the body which other books of its type overlook. If you need to draw a knee, this book tells you how. It contains some photographs of models to give a visual reference from where the drawings were derived. If you are looking for photographs for reference, this may not be your book. The poses are straight forward and simple, giving a basic view at the human figure. It is an excellent book to have on the shelves. I own a large number of anatomy books, some sketck oriented, some photographic. This is by far the most used of my collection. I highly recommend it.

One of the best value anatomy reference books
[[VIDEOID:mo8Q47417LQILZ]]Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist by Stephen Rogers Peck is an anatomy reference book.
It covers everything from bones, to muscles to topics like fat, veins, hair, age, sex, race and expression. There are some photos for reference as well. The writeup is descriptive and simple to understand. The examples are well illustrated and clearly labeled. It’s pretty comprehensive.
While it also has some figure drawing tips and instructions, it certainly is not as comprehensive as dedicated figure drawing books. Here, it’s on the approach to drawing certain parts. There’s not much on posing the figure.
I see this book get mentioned a lot on art forums online, for good reasons. It’s useful and very affordable.
This book’s recommended to beginner and intermediate artists.
