New Book: "The Lady Anatomist" by Rebecca Messbarger

In November The University of Chicago Press published a marvelous book about one of my heroes, Anna Morandi Manzolini. Manzolini was an 18th century artist, anatomist and expert wax anatomical modeler in the Age of Enlightenment. To learn more about the book click here.

You can see superb examples of Manzolini's work at the Palazzo Poggi in Bologna, Italy. Visit the museum's website by clicking here
