|A Netter's Atlas makes a great coffee table book because the illustrations inside are so colorful.|
|This is a great collection of short stories about love that I actually really enjoyed reading. But yes, the cover art was the initial motivator.|
To take my collection to the next level, I think I need to get my hands on an empty (or full and then emptied socially) bottle of Crystal Head Vodka. I am hoping I could grow a succulent plant inside, but I'm not sure there would be enough air. I can just picture this on a bookshelf though, on top of a few dustier books.
I also really love vintage medical posters, but I know anatomical drawings lining the walls aren't always the most pleasant for people. So I found some inspired illustrations that could fit this theme but aren't straight up frightening:
|Music posters are a great source of anatomical drawings turned art. This one is a win-win because I love the Avett Brothers, and the concert advertised was in Raleigh. I'm in the market for a poster from the Cary Koka Booth Avett Brothers concert if anyone has leads! via|
|There is an entire beautiful collection of nature-infused anatomical illustrations by artist Travis Bedel. To me these are the perfect mesh of that life and death juxtaposition that made Barcelona and Gaudi's architecture so intriguing. A wall of Travis Bedel's illustrations may be happening at the house if I can convince my other half that it isn't too morose. via|
