I want to start creating a textbook list, any books or texts that you found helpful or enlightening.

Gross Anatomy
-Principles of Human Anatomy - Gerard J. Tortora
-Human Anatomy - Martini, Timmons, Tallitsch
-Gray's Anatomy

Neural Anatomy
-The Human Brain; An Introduction to Its Functional Anatomy - John Nolte

-Dorland's Illustrated Medical dictionary

Flash Cards & Study tools

Not recommended
-Dictionary of Medical Terms - Mikel A. Rothenberg, Charles F. Chapman (Barron's Medical guides). Half the time you look for something and there is no entry for it. More of a layman's text then anything else.

I have a strong passion for anatomy, and I like to study it by drawing.

This is an original drawing, showing the interrelations between the spinal cord and a spiral staircase. Drawing is done in India Ink on a canvas panel with a guache wash. Item will ship out on the next business day of sale. You can find the auction on Ebay here

Thank you for your interest

If saying my item is for sale goes against any rules, feel free to take the link away.
