From a biological point of view, the human body is an infinitely complex marvel of fine design, superbly adapted to its functions by eons of evolutionary development. Hundreds of specialized organs, bones, muscles, nerve fibers, blood vessels, and other anatomical features comprise an interdependent network of bodily systems that enables the human organism to survive. Now the component parts of this intricate flesh-and-bone machine can be absorbed and understood by means of an ingenious format: a coloring book that can help mature children and adult colorists learn anatomy.
An affordable anatomy class, this easy learning study aid contains careful, scientifically accurate line renderings of the body's organs and major systems: skeletal, muscular, nervous, digestive, reproductive, and more. A total of 43 coloring pages (often with several illustrations on each) offers numerous views, cross-sections, diagrams and detailed closeups, labelled and numbered to correspond with suggestions for coloring. These suggestions are specially designed to emphasize the structural relationship in the body. By working through each system, the reader will gain not only an intimate knowledge of the location, appearance and role of the body parts, this learning tool will also be laying the groundwork for more sophisticated studies of anatomy.
