436 // MSN1 / The Human Body
I just found this book:
“The Human Body: What it is and how it works” by Mitchell Wilson (Author) and Cornelius De Witt (Illustrator) from 1959.
“(…) a stunning vintage anatomy book, depicting and explaining in more than 200 vibrant mid-century illustrations the inner workings of the body. Originally published in 1959, this colorful gem was inspired by German artist and researcher Fritz Kahn, who in his 1926 classic Man as Industrial Palace described the human body as “the highest performance machine in the world” and used industrial metaphors to illustrate its remarkable capacities.”
It seems that there are quite a lot of nice illustrations… Nice! I think I have to try to get it.
