My mom is an artist (as a hobby, though. She owns a clothing store as her job.) and she is REALLY BIG on the whole art and anatomy book thing, so if you go into my brother room you'll find this HUGE bookshelf just filled to the brim with every art book under the sun!
I read all of my dad's old medical textbooks and anatomy studies. Although some are a little disturbing. I really and truly did NOT enjoy seeing a picture of a cadaver's shriveled genitals while searching for a leg reference at 2 AM.
