This book contains full-sized nudes in motion and organizes them by the angle of the photograph. Face-forward shots come first, then forward-left, left, backward-left, backwards, backwards-right and so forth until a complete circle is made. This makes finding the perspective you want quite easy.
All of the photographs are black and white, which is great for pencil, charcoal and any medium lacking color. The last 1/3rd of the book has a male figure.
All in all, this book is great due to these elements:
1) All photographs are large and clear, and original photographs. You aren't drawing a copy of someone else's artwork.
2) Sample "thumbnail" sized artwork is provided on some margins to show you different styles of art and ways to draw the figures.
3) The book is organized such that it is easy to find the pose you want.
4) All of the figures are in motion, something that a real-live model can't hold for long, if at all.

Graininess is my only dislike with this book. The models are attractive and in an abundance of poses; but the clarity and detail is lost in the graininess of the photographs. Sharp photos are a must for a figure drawing book, and this book has average sharpness. Graininess should not prevent someone from gaining the details needed for a drawing.
The book is usefull, but large reproductions of the model become impossible because of lack of clarity. I recomend the book. I'm just saying there are better books of the same subject which cost about the same price. Judge for yourself.

I must say that the photos in this book do not lack dynamism. The photographers have gone to extremes to ensure that the poses are full of motion and gesture. However, as a figurative artist I can not use this book extensively because of the lack of feasibility of the poses. The figures jumping and twisting around are interesting but the poses are generally not useful.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I'll Take Muybridge and a Magnifying Glass, Please 17. August 2000
Von E. Richards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It's a pretty straightforward resource. It is hard to get your friends to peel off all their clothes and suspend themselves in midair, I will grant you that.
Also, it does not fill up half the book with those inevitable chapters telling the reader, "This is a pencil, you can draw with it and use an eraser, too. This is a watercolor brush..."
However, most of the poses in this book are unnatural poses of people making gestures I don't see in real life. A large majority of the images are of women, and skinny L.A. style women at that. (Interesting shave, there, missy.) Some of the photos are very, very dark and don't reveal anatomy at all. Also, they are very grainy. I don't know if this is a function of the film or the printing process (to keep the cost of printing an all-photo book down.)
I have to say, it was one of the better ones in the bookstore, but it leaves a good bit to be desired. It would have been nice if there were more males in it, the poses were more natural, and there were people of different sizes and (hello?) colors in there, too.
I have been using it to draw from, but all the flying in the air spreadeagle poses are not going to make it into my sketchbook. I think I will invest in a good magnifying glass and do some drawings from Muybridge's photo collections of people and animals in motion.

2.0 von 5 Sternen good idea, bad execution 9. September 2004
Von Lars Kingbeard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As other reviewers have mentioned, the photos are grainy. very grainy. However, left unmentioned was something even more troubling - many of the photos have been digitally cropped in photoshop or some such program. this was done presumably to save ink by not printing backgrounds. The cropping was done extremely poorly and amateurishly - there are toes that come to points, feet that look like blocks, all sorts of bizarre and unnatural concavities. a real hatchet job. the end result looks like someone took a pair of scissors and crudely snipped photos from a magazine. this sort of problem is particularly distressing in a book intended for artists as the accurate depiction of the outer contour of a form is vital for drawing.

On another note, the models are not actually that thin. more average. This would have been a useful book, if not for the botched photos. An older edition would likely be satisfactory.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Several Problems 13. Januar 2007
Von Painting Lady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've seen several mentions of grainy photos, and they are grainy, however that is the least of the problems with this book.

First of all many of the figures have been traced out from the background the photo was taken with and pasted onto a plain white background, causing multiple problems, like persepctive and flat or squished body surfaces where the models were originally sitting or lying on something. The "cutting and pasting" is sloppily done, and in many of the photos the tips of toes and fingers have been cut off, very annoying.

Secondly, there are several photographs that take up two pages...but this is a bound book, so the entire center of the body is not visible, and because a portion is in the binding even the countour is not usable. In additon to the two page layouts, there are multiple other figures that fall directly in the center of the book, and are rendered unusable by the binding. The only thing I can figure is that this was originally a spiral bound book, or had pull out pages, like a magazine centerfold. I can't imagine someone would intentionally publish a book with such an awful layout.

Lastly, some of the "motion" figures are cheats. One in particular is clearly a man laying on something propped up on a pillow, but he has been cut and pasted as though it were an upright pose...maybe that explains why so many found the poses "unatural". That wouldn't be a big deal if the book wasn't called "The Figure In Motion", and was maybe titled "Some Figures In Motion, and Some Sedentary But Turned To Appear As Though They Were In Motion."

Couldn't give it no stars, as I will use some of the photos, but my money could most certainly have been better spent.
