Atlas of the human body

£10.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Large hardback in VGC.
This large-format, beautifully presented book presents a journey through the human body both figuratively and literally. With exquisite, painstakingly detailed pencil illustrations by Kanitta Meechubot, the body is separated into layers on each page, and each layer is die-cut to show the layers underneath. As the pages are turned, young readers will find themselves traveling through the body in a way that will delight and inspire. In the second section of the book, text by ER doctor Vanessa Jessop explains the functions of the body's key organs in clear, accessible tones. Further illustrations accompany the text so that the heart, the lungs, the brain, the liver, etc., are all vividly brought to life. Harking back to anatomy atlases of the last century, the book has a classical simplicity to it, which is complemented by the clean, minimal design. Exquisite packaging sets it all off, including a fabric spine, a bold metallic cover, and creamy, heavy paper stock. A gorgeous gift book to keep and treasure. Kanitta Meechubot is a paper engineer and illustrator known for her intricate papercuts, which have been featured in numerous publications including the cover of Granta magazine and a number of titles by Portobello Books.
