Skull and Bones Medical Illustrations

I come across a lot of medical reference books in my quest for beautiful old illustrations and I especially like skulls and skeletons. I can’t remember where I came across the following four illustrations, but look what a difference a little color makes!

Some skulls just seem happier than others. Maybe its the colors If you’d like to see some more cool anatomy, this previous  blog shows my favorite skeletons and human insides from a 1904 Encyclopedia Brittanica.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
