Drawing People tutorial book by Majnouna Drawing People tutorial book by Majnouna
To mark the launch of Drawing People as an ebook, I finally made a new cover for it!

Get the book! (coil-bound; for a different and cheaper binding go here)
Get the ebook!

For those not familiar, this is my most acclaimed publication so far, collecting all my human tutorials with some added material:

Everything you need to know to draw the human figure in all its liveliness and diversity, illustrated in full color. Chapters:
- Introduction: Cultivating Your Drawing Skills
- Drawing the body (comparative face and body anatomy for men and women, muscle diagrams, hands and feet, notes on balance and foreshortening)
- Emotions and facial expressions (a study of a sample of 60 expressions with additional notes on posture, etc.)
- Flexibility (understand how and where the body bends)
- Aging the face and body, detailed for men and women
- Catalog of human features (eye/hair/skin color, nose/eyebrow/eye/breast shapes, body types)
- Guide to human types (detailed anatomic and facial characteristics of over 50 ethnotypes, from Ainu to Zulu, with notes on mixed types the only such guide in existence)

What is the "PERFECT-BOUND EDITION" mean? What kind of binding is that?
Majnouna Feb 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
That is the binding, "perfect binding". You can wiki it :)

That's strange. I've never heard that term used for that binding before. Thank-you.

Thanks a lot, it's great to hear this :)
SO glad to see this is out there now -- the perfect all-in-one reference guide for every aspect of drawing human beings! I've loved your tutorials for years, and now that they're in print as a collection, I can aspire to have all of them available at once, including while working on digital art. This definitely goes on my birthday wishlist.

As for the cover design itself, I think it does a good job of highlighting the completeness and diversity of the material covered, while focusing on the kind of artwork which these elements combine to allow one to create. Kudos!
