The Sick Rose: Disease and the Art of Medical Illustration by Richard Barnett
Before Google Image Search and WebMD, there were medical illustrators—artists who painstakingly produced images of the effects of all kinds of conditions and diseases for all types of use by doctors, researchers and the morbidly curious. This beautiful and elaborately gross volume tracks the history of medical illustration and includes medical examples from some of the world's rarest medical books. It's just the thing for some light reading with dinner.
