About the book

In Morpho: Joint forms and muscular functions, artist and teacher Michel Lauricella presents a mechanical view of the human body. In the same way that paleontologists work, we can deduce the body's muscular functions by studying the shapes of the bones. Starting with the joints, which are reduced to simple shapes such as pulleys and spheres, Lauricella teaches you their connections and correspondences with the muscular system, which is necessary for understanding movement. Geared toward artists of all levels, from beginners through professionals, this handy, pocket-sized book will facilitate your practice of imaginative drawing and will enrich your drawing from observation. (Publisher's Note: This book features an "exposed" binding style. This is intentional as it is designed to help the book lay flat as you draw.)
