Format: Hardcover
I do not own this book, but I used a library copy to write and provide plates for a research paper last year. The examples of Kahn's work are phenomenal and many! Also, it provided an interesting view of this man as artist and scientist rather than either or. It also discusses Kahn's creativity as well as technical weakness in the arts, and expressed an interesting view of his use of artisans to express scientific idea. I would also suggest his 2 volume work "Man & Structure" as an accompaniment to the visuals within this collection.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kahn's book is a rare combination of artistic excellence and deep knowledge in anatomy of the human body. Kahn lucidly renders the functions of the human organs, representing in pure, simple sketches how the body operates, incorportating industrial metaphors for demonstrating what we all know, but for irrational reasons tend to ignore. The book is recommended to anatomy professionals, to artists and to students of medicine.
