Went to a garage sale today and got a copy of Mortensen's The Model,
a '46 printing. It was refreshing to read.
So the question is, what are your posing book recommendations?

Ahh, I picked up Mortensen's Pictorial Lighting at a Library sale for pennies. He has a very singular, yet informed, way of working.

'The Body' is a fantastic book. It doesn't provide a very deep look into any one photographer, but covers loads! It's my go-to book for portrait inspiration.

I found a copy of the model in russian unfortunately I can't read russian but the illustrations speak for themselves and the book is quiet good. BTW One of Mortensens books "The new projection control" is available for download on the internet archive. http://www.archive.org/details/newprojectioncon000727mbp it's not a posing book though.
