Human history as seen through medical illustration 5 juin 2014
Par Sondra McClendon - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am incredibly excited about what this book has to offer fellow readers. While it can quickly be seen simply as a finely designed coffeetable book of grotesque handmade images, the award-winning author channels his fascination of medical history to illuminate deeper questions. Since everything is connected, The Sick Rose is an awe-inspiring look at history, politics, culture, art, science, and medicine.

For author Richard Barnett, his original track as a forensic pathologist revealed an ugly side of medical school, which was "taking well rounded people and squashing them so they can become something of a sort of machine." He found the opportunity to study the history of medicine a joyful switch as he realized he could maintain his diverse interests in human life. This book reckons inquiry from "how we live in our bodies" to the objective aim of science.

These images were essential for teaching students and helping with diagnoses, but what I kept wondering was how the process of capturing a patient's physical suffering must have affected their mental and emotional state. As these pictures came before color photography, there were so many people involved in their production that it was impossible to preserve objectivity. I think this was an issue with black and white photography too, especially since coming across the work of Sander Gilman (see Seeing the Insane, and Sexuality: An Illustrated History). Gilman is not nearly the poet that the author is, but his books are still fascinating.

The Woman Behind The Leprosy - The Man Behind The Syphilis 23 juin 2014
Par C. K. Lidster - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This gorgeously designed little 7" x 10" book, 'little' being relative to typically oversized art monographs, is one of the most paradoxically appealing and revolting releases of the year. I have long admired D.A.P.'s commitment to utilizing the highest-quality materials and binding in every book they publish, and The Sick Rose is no exception. The writing is informative and impeccably researched, delving into the gruesome history of anatomical research in a professional manner that walks the tightrope between sensationalistic indulgence of morbid fascination on the one side, and overly clinical jargon designed to emotionally distance the reader on the other. The earliest years of what would become modern medicine were remarkable in the lengths these 'Resurrectionists' went to in obtaining corpses for study. For a time, condemned criminals were routinely sentenced to death and public dissection, their bodies donated to the Medical Institutes. This practice was ended in the early 19th Century, but parliament allowed that any person found dead without identification and/or someone willing to claim their body would be fair game for anatomical research. This amounted to depriving the poorest classes of any guarantee that they would be given a decent burial, and many were outraged that poverty alone meant they might be dissected publicly like criminals. 'Burial Insurance' became a popular method of avoiding the indignities that might have been inflicted on their bodies. As test subjects became scarce, members of the nascent medical community were complicit in murder, paying money to the 'Ghouls' that stalked the harbors for departing ships, where they would kill drunken sailors not likely to be missed and deliver them to the Anatomists. This Black Market trade in lives was rooted in an upper class arrogance that saw the poor as a drain on society. This arrogance also extended to their belief in the supreme importance of their research. A worthless beggar or drunk was far more valuable dead, perhaps providing them with the knowledge of how to end smallpox, syphilis, cancer, even death itself (Hence the term 'Resurrectionist'). As fascinating as the history of medicine is, the artwork, used to document and compare ailments in the age before cameras, is truly stunning; first, because the level of technical ability is of a very high order, and second, because many of the symptoms depicted are horrifying, disfiguring the subjects to a point that is near monstrous. The fact that the artists rarely depersonalize their subjects, but instead make us see and feel for their suffering, forcing us to wonder who these poor people were, makes The Sick Rose one of the most powerful and poignant artbooks I've read. Once again, I have to comment on the design and layout, which is some of the best work I've seen. The cover image, the turquoise cloth spine and paint-embossed titles, the color endpapers which turn a blown-up detail of a torso covered in lesions into a random design element -- everything offers proof of the thought, labor and expense that went into all 260 pages of this fine volume. Not for the squeamish, but that should be obvious. Highest Recommendations.

Like Christmas! 24 août 2014

Amazing attention to detail in the design and printing, and wonderful essays included. I only wish there were a little more range in the time period of the illustrations, but these manage to make skin diseases look like art. I collect medical books and illustrations, as well as visit the Dittrick Museum of Medical History often, so to me, this was as if Christmas came early.
