5.0 su 5 stelle The Woman Behind The Leprosy - The Man Behind The Syphilis 23 giugno 2014
Di EisNinE - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
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.

Di Sacheverelle - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Fabulous illustrations of common pre-antibiotic-age maladies such as syphilis, advanced gout, sepsis, various types of pox, etc. Morbidly fascinating and quite thought-provoking. How awful it must have been for human beings before the development of modern medicine and sanitary standards. How different everyday life must have been with people walking around emblazoned with the tell-tale signs of tertiary syphilis, people you probably knew. This book definitely restored in me a greater sense of gratitude for being born in modern times with our cures for..stuff.
5.0 su 5 stelle Really interesting collection 6 novembre 2015
Di Marcel B. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Nice collection of work. Some of these pages are hard to look at but its a really nice book to look though for texture, shape, color and blobby design. The human body does some interesting things when attacked and this really shows the effects and the way that people perceived them throughout time. First saw this in the P.S.1 MOMA book shop and I had to get it first thing when i got home.

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.

Skimpy on the descriptions: I was hoping for more information on the historical settings and maybe case information.
