Gifts for Brain Enthusiasts: Part 3

My last post was quite heavy-going and I’m in the midst of writing something more political so I thought it might need breaking up with something more whimsical! In case you’ve forgotten, here’s part 1 and part 2

Find 1:Think Geek is a treasure trove for brain and other anatomy-themed items. These coasters are made up of slices through the brain and look incredible, I’ll certainly be ordering some when they re-stock! Postage and customs (it’s a US site) can be high so worth saving for a bulk order with others.

Fascinating Histology-Print Plates

histology

Another one for lovers of anatomical-themed treasures. Medical illustrator Emily Evans has created these beautiful plates printed with images taken under the microscope of human tissue. They’ve been stained in pretty pastel colours, and you could eat your dinner off a section of the testicle, oesophagus, thyroid or five other designs. They’re selling out quickly, get them while you can! I’d seen Emily’s work before, and I love how she combines in-depth knowledge of anatomical science (she teaches dissection in addition to her illustration work) with art.
