Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body

JAMA. 2008;299(2):220-226. doi:10.1001/jama.2007.17

The sixth edition of the Color Atlas of Anatomy is an immediate hit, with its appealing design and durable hardback cover. This atlas is ideal for those of us who still prefer to thumb through pages. The photographs are of excellent quality, printed on high-quality paper, and are often accompanied by helpful diagrams and charts. Key structures and patterns (eg, the cerebral blood flow) are presented in color modes when deemed appropriate by the authors. These features set this atlas apart from the others, which often are simply a collection of labeled photographs.
