Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934)
My sister Laura got me a great birthday gift this year--a book called Super Vision: A New View of Nature.
One of the best things about the book is that its inclusion of one of Spanish anatomist Santiago Ramón y Cajal's delicate and elegant drawings of the cells of the retina. His drawings look more like surrealistic seascapes or minimalist compositions than medical illustration. Find out more about him here and see more images of his work here.
