    bammes books help

    Hi, I am looking to buy a book by Bridgman this christmass, but I am wondering If this book is not the same one I have in pdf. I believe they are different. but I am not sure. Because people keep saying this book is good

    http://www.amazon.com/Gestalt-Mensch.../dp/3363009666

    the one I downloaded is named
    Gottfried Bammes - Der Nackte Mensch.pdf


    and what is the name about the one with the animals?

    you can tell the difference because of the title
    ive never heard of a bamme book on animals
    this book, Die Gestalt des Menschen is good because it's more about drawing the figure, where as Der Nackte Mensch is more about the proper anatomy
    and btw, i think you meant Bammes in your first sentence, not bridgman

    You probably have the pdf version of this one, not neccesarily bad, but it pales in comparison to the original, both in quality and quantity.

    That's the expensive, german-only version, the real deal. You can get them cheaper than 600 dollars though, that's just crazy. I got mine in the neighbourhood of 70 euro's.

    Setsuna801,

    This has been discussed here only a couple of days ago.

    www.4-art.org - art educational books
    www.Practicum.org - art educational portal
    guru@4-art.org - my direct e-mail
    Russian Academy of Arts thread - all about it

    There was a sign on the Academy building, “Free Arts”. “What’s that?”, we asked our professor. – “That’s to be able to create anything, but to create what you want to.”

    Yeah I meant bamme at the biginning.

    I want to get this book for christmass but i want to make sure it as what I wont.

    I like the constructive anatomy by bridgment pretty good but I wished it was slightly more clear.

    If possible I would like to see a few good scan from this bamme book before I buy it. But it is probably soo good that I can buy it blind hehe ^^.

    I'll check out your link book guru
