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.
