Fabulous Cat Papers carries gorgeous handmade embroidered notebooks with all kinds of perfectly geeky themes (heavily focused on anatomy and science).

I’d having trouble choosing just one of these (and I have an odd habit of “saving” really nice notebooks and leaving them blank because they are are art pieces!).

She’s clearly inspired by not only the natural world, but magic, myth and alchemy (all fine sources of inspiration!).

The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic

Posted in anatomy, antiques, Books, wish list with tags , , , on May 26, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

The inimitable Joana Ebenstein of The Morbid Anatomy Museum has just published a remarkable book on the subject of the Anatomical Venus.

713oN0JPiEL

Of all the artifacts from the history of medicine, the Anatomical Venus―with its heady mixture of beauty, eroticism and death―is the most seductive. These life-sized dissectible wax women reclining on moth-eaten velvet cushions―with glass eyes, strings of pearls, and golden tiaras crowning their real human hair―were created in eighteenth-century Florence as the centerpiece of the first truly public science museum.

Conceived as a means to teach human anatomy, the Venus also tacitly communicated the relationship between the human body and a divinely created cosmos; between art and science, nature and mankind. Today, she both intrigues and confounds, troubling our neat categorical divides between life and death, body and soul, effigy and pedagogy, entertainment and education, kitsch and art.

The book is extensively researched and features over 250 images. It looks absolutely amazing. I’m sure many readers of this blog will want to pick up a copy. Let me know what you think!
