This is not a study of pose. There is no discussion on lines and angles and form to guide a model or photographer or sculptor or any other person.
This is simply a book where the model moves through various poses and the photographer shoots and when they get to 1000 they stop. Many you would never use for fashion or even fine art.

Coco Rocha, if you don't know, is a Canadian model. Together with photographer Steven Sebring, they have produced a book of 1,000 poses.
The premise is interesting enough for me to get it. 1,000 poses! They could be good for reference. But there's a big caveat.
Let's talk about the book's physical aspect first. It's a 2032-page hardcover about 7 by 9 inches. It's very thick and heavy. Edges of the pages are printed black.
Majority of the pages stick together. By the time I peel off the pages from each other, reaching about hundred over pages, I was quite tired, at two hundred pages, I was irritated, and at three hundred pages I was reflecting on the production value of this book. Yes, you'll have a lot of time to think about things while peeling the pages. Those people who say this is a good book may not have peeled more pages than me yet.
And because the pages are so thin, it's easy to crease them when peeling them apart.
Production quality of the book is quite bad. For the price of the book, it's very bad. I should also note that publisher Harper Design is known for publishing illustrated books such as the The Hobbit film companions, 532-page Harry Potter Page to Screen and 464-page The Art of Film Magic which are all quality production. It's quite shocking to see a book of this production quality from them.
The binding is also questionable. The book uses stitch binding, thank goodness. However, the piece of cloth that sticks to the stitched binding does not seem to use particularly strong adhesive.Read more ›
It will be a great reference resource for my future photographic concepts.

This book is primarily a set of pictures of different poses and that's it. Number of poses is less than the one thousand toted in the book's title. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Peter Davies
Video that is supposed to be available with is NOT so. Or at least I never found it.
Paper is incredibly thin.
A very progressive piece of work in terms of not only fashion but of the movement of the human body.Published 20 months ago by Chris
