Volvovski, Rothman, and Lamothe’s introduction notes that “Much of the inspiration for this book came from looking through old scientific charts and diagrams, in periods where the scientific world was still very much in development. There are incredibly beautiful anatomically incorrect drawings from the Japanese Edo period, and wonderful classroom diagrams from the 1950s detailing the structure of blood cells. These visually unique works attempt to impart an understanding of phenomenon.”
