"ideal for the scientifically minded or the faintly morbid"

The Human Body by Richard Walker, illustrated by Rachel Caldwell, is ideal for the scientifically minded or the faintly morbid. This anatomy guide boasts up-to-the-minute information with a Victorian twist; set in 1839, it casts the reader as a medical student embarking on their first dissection. Lovingly coloured multilayered flaps and interlocking pop-ups give a brilliant sense of the human form’s complexity.
