(Foreword) "These unique books have been produced for one reason only: to provide a vast amount of hitherto unavailable figure reference material in convenient manner. It is an essential piece of equipment for use by professional people and those in training who need to depict accurate graphic representations of human figures. Whilst every effort has been made to provide as much information as possible, it must be appreciated that any Publication dealing with the action and poses of the human figure can never be definitive In the full sense of the word. The system of photography we have employed, however, allows the user, not only to obtain whole or part figure reference, but to combine gags., such figures that have been photographed ,mm a common viewpoint — thus increasing the reference material available by an enormous amount. Because of the rapid change in fashions we have deliberately avoided using clothes which are not normal, everyday styles. All the basic types of garment are shown however and are easily adaptable."
