Dr E Ransom

What I found most interesting about this session was how serious these books were at the time of their production - their painstakingly delicate and clever production. These are not children’s educational pop-up books but essential resources for doctors or veterinarians practicing in an age when visualizing the hidden workings of the body was not as simple as it is for us today. So we had fun lifting ribs and removing spleens.

Also interesting was Michael explaining briefly the one other area of science that turned to complex paper construction to help explain itself: astronomy. Aside from numbers, text, and illustration, how else can the interactions between celestial bodies be shown? With the moving parts of a pop-up book.
