The above work is by Paula Braconnot who makes illustrations by composing old engravings. Im mad about drawing anatomy and my home is filled with anatomy books, I recently started doing some paintings of my boyfriend and friends replacing sections of what should be skin with what would lie beneath, after getting the biggest ever book of anatomical books filled with beautiful plates some similar to those which Paula Braconnot has used here. My boyfriend complained at the cost as he has never seen a book cost what that did but i proved him that it was worth every penny and I even got my favorite illustration of a heart tattooed on my chest! I love that book!!!
