Wellcome Medical Photographic Library

I received an email recently with details of the Wellcome Medical Photgraphic Library. You can find it here. It's a wonderful resource full of images from across the centuries. Images are catagorized as follows - Anatomy, Circulation, Disease, Genetics, Pregnancy and Birth, Plants in Medicine. You may already be familiar with this resouce but if not then do take a look. It's full of all sorts of gems. I particularly liked this image (above) by Thomas Rowlandson of A midwife going to a labour (1811).

For the very best in medical illustration and animation see the Medical Illustration Source Book at http://www.medillsb.com

There are gorgeous examples of current art from professional artists. You can preview the book or perform a keyword search for particular images.
