I wound up with a few amazon.com gift certificates, so I wanted to get a good anatomy book to study, one targeted at artists with lots of useful diagrams and explanations of muscle and bone, so that I can master the human form. Any suggestions of good/useful books that you pros studied back in the day and found helpful?

Thanks! The gift certificate doesn't work for any of them for some reason... (I think because they're not sold directly by amazon), but I might buy one anyway. Gotta learn my anatomy
