For over 23 years, The Anatomy
Coloring Book has been the #1 selling human anatomy coloring book,
offering concisely written text and precise, extraordinary hand-drawn
figures. Organized according to body systems, each of the 170 plates
featured in this book includes an ingenious color-key system where
anatomical terminology is linked to detailed illustrations of the
structures of the body.
Often imitated, never duplicated.
Jul 12, 2007I had such a good time coloring that I thought I should probably go to medical school. Then I turned the page and saw how badly my markers had seeped through the pages and thought better of it.
Feb 12, 2016This book saved my ass in Anatomy while doing my nursing pre reqs. The diagrams in class and the models with little flags couldn't hold a candle to the efficacy of coloring the different parts and committing it to memory.
Aug 08, 2019If your a visual learner it's great. I would make photo copies of each section I was working, then the book can be reused as a refresher when needed as many times as you wanted to cover a topic.
Jun 01, 2012though not specifically for artists, the musculature section is one of the best i have seen. points of muscle origin and insertion are made instantly clear. muscle function is described more clearly here than in any artistic anatomy text i have encountered. coloring helps with learning anatomy and allows the reader to become intimate with each reference plate. read, color, copy, and improve
Jun 03, 2009Awesome book! I have colored through a couple of these for studying & for fun!
May 10, 2013My chiropractor recommended this to me. Really helped me understand some things before I had surgery last year. I use it all the time when I have other issues and want to understand how I'm put together.
Mar 03, 2008Best and most FUN way to learn anatomy -- coloring! I love this book so much and recommend it highly to anyone learning anatomy. It's full of great information and uses a very hands on method of learning. Plus, it's just fun to color. :)
Dec 23, 2007A fun overview of basic anatomy, something I can do while listening to music and so on, allowing my kinesthetic sense to do the work. Some of the pictures get a bit garbled (i.e., the hand) unless you are the Rembrandt of coloring books.
Oct 17, 2010Useful study tool, although some of the drawings are difficult to figure out as far as whether that thin line there is supposed to be a vein or tendon or an artery or any other long-thin-line-type-structure. But hey - it's a coloring book, so who cares?
Oct 23, 2015terrific illustrations. great for studying anatomy in detail. spending time coloring was a very different study experience and I think Im hooked. just need to make sure a large variety of colored pencils are available for use. also, yes use pencils.
Sep 11, 2009This book is great! What better way to encourage studying than through an artistic endeavour. Helps those that are right brain memorize all the intricate details needed for intensive anatomy classes down the road.
Jun 09, 2014I've gone through two copies of this book. One of my all-time favorites. If you love learning about how the body works, and appreciate the meditative energy of coloring books, then this one's for you.
Sep 04, 2012This is a text book , I suspect I will be referring to it and rereading sections of it for years to come! Using colored pencils to separate out the different parts of the heart, etc... Was quite helpful. Otherwise, left in the black and white state, it really does not mean a whole lot.
Jul 28, 2011Utilizes a different learning modality to really glue the information in your brain - was a really helpful and enjoyable break to an intense heavy on memorization anatomy course. Good review if you forgot what you learned way back when!
Apr 18, 2012I like this series: It's better than I anticipated; I think some of the earlier editions had covers that made them seem too elementary. I've almost finished my Human Brain and I just started my Physiology, so I think they're pretty cool. Get out the big box of crayons ;)
Oct 16, 2010I used this book for an introductory class in anatomy & kinesiology through UCSD extension. Since the class is geared for getting certified as an exercise instructor, the book was WAY more complicated than we needed. We discussed a higher level of information in more simplified terms. Having said that, the diagrams are very helpful.
Dec 05, 2012This is a great way to learn anatomy. We learn using our senses. This method adds so much more than trying to GET the information from flat pages in a book. I need to perceive variety ,depth, contrast etc to really understand the nuances. This book along with colored pencils and a sharpener can help you learn anatomy better.

Jun 28, 2016I highly suggest this for anyone who needs to learn anatomy. You color in the word of the body part and then color the corresponding part the same color. It's an amazing way to learn (and remember) anatomy. Pineal gland? Latisimus dorsi? You got it! I originally purchased the book for my Pilates training, but what I learned had me leaps and bounds ahead of my classmates in biopsych, psychopharmacology, and related classes in my Clinical Mental Health Masters program.
Oct 04, 2010This book is fun to have, and several of the sections (on muscle groups particularly) are useful, but I believe it covers a little more than it should. The sections on connective and epithelial tissue are way too detailed to make coloring a useful method of learning. It seems that they took textbook information, made it very concise, and tried to squeeze in images. It worked better for Botany and Biology, and I wouldn't recommend it if you are short on cash.
Nov 07, 2010No I haven't read every single page in this amazing book, but I do use it a lot! I absolutely love how if I can't find an answer to a muscle problem I can flip open this book and there it is; the answer staring me in the face. It shows the muscles and when they are used in convenient pictures with maybe some small explanations. It's so easy! I use this version but there are many others that I know are just as good. I bow down to these books.
Mar 22, 2012This book is fun because it has such an innocent sounding title, but has a lot of meat inside. It's not just a coloring book, but has descriptions of what is on the page. For most of the book printing is on the right hand page only. (That is a plus since it removes the problem of bleed-through.)
Feb 08, 2017This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Anatomy Coloring Book @1977, ISBN: 006453914-8, PB--can't remember where or when I got this.
Oct 31, 2018This was the required text for my DANCE class and it was ah-mazing!
Apr 16, 2019As both an artist and a nursing student, I love this book. It helps tremendously with my visual memory - and with tracing and keeping track of all the little details, especially of assorted vessels and nerves.
