The next three series of updates is all material found through the website ´Images from the History of Medicine (IHM)´:
“Images from the History of Medicine (IHM) provides access to nearly 70,000 images in the collections of the History of Medicine Division (HMD) of the U.S National Library of Medicine (NLM). The collection includes portraits, photographs, caricatures, genre scenes, posters, and graphic art illustrating the social and historical aspects of medicine dated from the 15th to 21st century.”
This is a selection out of the nearly 70,000 with set of illustrations, photographs and personal favorites.
Many of these images have been featured before in the glorious Lilliputrid site and in my opinion will be forever associated with it.
Not only does it show an incredible poetry to the selection, but nearly everything comes from obscure sources (showing again the importance of original material) and all of them are presented uniquely and beautifully.
This is how it should be done, every importance in visual blogging was not made by reblogs so thank you Lilliputrid for all your work and dedication.
Everyone with a remote interest in ´art blogging´ should pay a visit as it of the highest quality and highest sensitivity.
Thank you Rapeblossom for spending hours going through the website with me, editing the images and coding the thing… it was a ridiculous task and I would not have done it without you.
No one will know of the physical ailments suffered by hours and hours of researching and all of this effort and disease is dedicated to you.
