    I never saw that book, and I am a huge fan of bridgman! I NEEED it now
    I don't think that it is included in the complete guide.

    According to a comment here - Drawing the Female Form is the only book completely left out of Bridgman's "Complete Guide to Drawing from Life". Apparently it has both photographs and the drawings made from them printed in the book.

    ...

    You can get it here - pretty cheap really.

    - it doesn't look like his most useful book - Apparently more sketchy and faded than "the human machine".

    This is so awesome. I never knew about this book, and I have all of the other Bridgman books... it always irked me that there were very few female figures in his books. I'm going to have to get this.

    Reading the reviews doesn't seem favorable, even from other die hard Bridgman fans:

    Hmm. I'd still like to check it out just out of curiosity. I'm kind of a nerd like that.

    its worth picking up, whats cool about this one is that there are black and white photos of the models then the drawing of them. It's a small book but if you have the rest and you like Bridgman its good to get.
