Interested in knowing more about an early anatomical text's direct relationship to pornography (top two images)? Or the fetal skeleton tableaux of "artist of death" Frederik Ruysch (second image down)? Or perhaps you'd be interested in knowing more about the relationship between a pioneering criminology text and surrealist art (bottom two images)?
If any or all of these things are of interest, click here to check out some new, heavily-illustrated Morbid Anatomy guest posts on the wonderful New York Academy of Medicine's "Books, Health and History" Blog.
Also, don't forget to save the date for the October 5th Festival of Medical History and the Arts at NYAM, co-curated by Morbid Anatomy and Lawrence Weschler, author of Mr. Wilson and his Cabinet of Wonders. You can find more on that here, and more on a few anatomical workshops offered as part of that event by clicking here.
