Turning the Pages


Thanks to another blogger, I found Turning the Pages by the British Library. My eye was caught by Andrea Vesaliu's De Humani Corporis Fabrica, an old (1543) and beautifully illustrated anatomy book. Thanks to my husband's work as an anatomist and professor, we have a lot of anatomy books. I am impressed by how well-illustrated many of them are. I have a hard time looking at some of these illustrations but usually I can put it aside and appreciate the drawings as works of art.
