Craniofacial Anatomy and Forensic Identification covers all aspects of facial reconstruction and anatomy of the body, including post cranial, facial expression, anatomical basis for facial development, innervations and the effects of life and muscle movement. Written by a world-renowned forensic artist with decades of experience as an artist and professor, the book demonstrates how our bodies are recording devices for what happens to us physically throughout our lives.
