I don't own a copy of the original German book so I can't say how they compare, but I must say that based on my first skimming of this book it looks extremely good. A lot of excellent construction techniques for drawing the figure.
Oh sweet! Can you post more pictures and say a bit more about it? I have heard his books vary a lot in terms of quality--you get something amazing in one, then another book is filled mostly with student's drawings. Is this actually worth picking up? How would you say it compares to other anatomy books like those by Bridgman?

And we'll have his "Drawing Animals" (Tiere zeichnen) coming up this week.
It's in Russian, but the most of this book is all about visuals.
Sorry if I interfere with your posts about the English edition of his "Menschen zeichnen", but his "Drawing Animals" wasn't available for a long time either, so I wanted to let you know about this new edition as well.
As I've mentioned earlier, there is "some" English publisher who's purchased the English rights for all 4 Bammes books. We've been sending inquires but they can't tell us the name yet. I'll try to find out when I'm at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
The worst is if they only wanted to make an investment. In such case you won't see these books published in English too soon.
