Anatomy in Black by Emily Evans, BSc (Hons.) Anatomy & Cell Biology PGCE MMAA RMIP, is a sophisticated coffee table book for anatomy lovers. It illustrates the beauty of human anatomy reflected in a contemporary hardback book, created entirely in black and gold. Traditional anatomical imagery is given a new lease of life through modern interpretation in this stylish publication. The book comprehensively leads the reader through the human body in seven chapters dedicated to each area of the human body. It covers the same level of detail and content with each illustration as a standard academic anatomy book. A thorough evaluation of each anatomical part is conveyed in double page spreads with summary text to put the area in context and explain some of the more complicated anatomical terminology and function for those encountering anatomy for the first time. This makes this book a perfect companion for those interested in anatomy, regardless of their previous knowledge of the subject matter.
