Anatomical Illustrations from 1901

February 12th, 2014 | Brain



While perusing the archives of one of my favorites inspiration sources, Brain Pickings, I came across these century-old anatomy illustrations made by E.J. Stanley. The images cycle through three main layers of the human body — skin, muscle and bone. I’ve always appreciated the style of illustration used in old anatomy texts, and a flip book is a great way to demonstrate the subject. The illustrations really remind me of the old French anatomy plates created by Gautier D’Agoty.

If you enjoyed these, you might be able to pick up some old posters by E.J. Stanley on EBay Here.
