    As far as I know it exists only in German. There is the big book (don't know the exact name), and some of its sections are available as smaller independent and topic focused books if I remember correctly.

    yepp. costs 70 bucks over here but it's definitely worth each and every cent. Probably the best book on anatomy (for the artist) you can get nowadays!
    The pictures are explaining themselves as in any good anatomybook, though the texts include a ton of information that can't be shown in pictures. Unfortunately this book has not been translated (yet) but some smaller ones have, so get these. bammes is always worth it

    Wow, I have been trying to get this book. It was recommended from one of the instructors of the workshop and I have been looking for it since. Even if it is in german, I heard that the drawings and plates are worth it. Only thing is that so far I found it for around $140 in Amazon(USA), and for about 79 euros in german amazon, somewhat expensive Still looks like a great book to get.

    Judging from your comment, i'm guessing the book is still in print, but that doesn't make sense 'cause all i see on sites are used copies

    Is the book still in print or what? Could someone please answer this?

    The book ist still in print ... There was a cheaper version some years ago by the german publisher 2001 (Zweitausendeins) who sold it for 25 Euro. I got this one myself but maybe it´s possible to get this as a used book somewhere.

    Definitely my favourite anatomy book - alone the masses of photos of people of all ages and conditions are something you won´t find today easily.

    You don't need to know how to speak German to appreciate what this book has to offer. This is one of the best books on anatomy available; probably one of my most valuable purchases as an artist.

    First saw it at the Sketchmeet last month I think, and then our Drawing teacher recommended another one of Bammes' books (Menschen Zeichnen - Drawing Humans), so I think I'll give it a go. I saw it in a library and gotta say it's pretty damn big. Full of photos and sketches. If you can, get it.

    Alright, the book arrived today (I Amazon). Pretty sure this will be my book concerning anatomy. Bammes seems to combine all good resources from earlier eras, lending from former masters, from Da Vinci to Hogarth. There's a downside though. The text is very scholastic and even though I'm well trained in grammar, reading a sentence in the book is a pain. No wonder it hasn't been translated yet. Even the captions are overly complicated.
