NYJB reviews "The Art of Medicine: Over 2000 Images and Imagination" by Julie Anderson

Cynthia Doran writes,“With The Art of Medicine: Over 2,000 Years of Images and Imagination on your lap a faraway gallery is made available—a gallery in which the past and the current worlds appear, both filtered through the art of medicine.”
March 7, 2012 - PRLog -- New York Journal of Books reviewer Cynthia Doran praises, "If pictures really were worth a thousand words, the selections contained here would equate to volumes of writings—serious, graphic novel, humorous, mysterious, fear-riddled, and awe-inspired".

Ms. Doran also writes, "One of the most fascinating themes throughout the book centers on anatomy. There are maps of the human body drawn on sculptures, maps of brains and heads—depicting functionality, maps of yin and yang, anatomy man, nerve man, wound man, ancient maps of blood circulation, and also astrology and acupuncture charts."

Ms. Doran states, "Also shown is how disease, the “healers,” and disease treatments are represented in different cultures and nations (African, Asian, Persian, Tibetan, and Western to name only a few), but the political and social climates in which the artworks erupt make for the most lively reading and viewing."
