By Benjamin A. Rifkin and Michael J. Ackerman
Tuck into this rich chronicle of the history of anatomical illustration! Rifkin and Ackerman's Human Anatomy: A Visual History, from the Renaissance to the Digital Age is loaded with more than 400 exquisite - and compelling images. From the classic and grotesque posing corpses of Vesalius, created in a time when human dissection was illegal for even doctors, to the contemporary digital Visible Human project, this fascinating book is a terrific documentation of how artists over the past 500 years have played an essential role in the medical sciences. Paperback, 344 pages.
