1917 Anatomical Pig Interactive Fold-Out!
I just happened upon an ingenious, manipulatable Flash animation of an anatomical fold-out pig, sourced from the frontispiece of the 1917 publication Bacon and Hams by George J. Nicholls. Click here to experience the pig in its many states--muscular, skeletal, circulatory--and click on the numbers to learn some pig anatomy. There are also some hidden fetuses if you have the patience to click around enough. God bless the internet!
Found via the French Culinary Institutes's "Cooking Issues Blog," which also features a few more memorable images; click here to see them all, and find out more about the overlooked classic Bacon and Hams.
