The Sick Rose: Or; Disease and the Art of Medical Illustration

The Sick Rose documents the gruesome reality of disease in an era before colour photography, and features some of the world’s rarest medical illustrations.

 

Witness the symptoms of Lyme disease, smallpox and leprosy - just a few of the major illnesses that plagued the world before advances in medicine – captured in terrifying detail in this visual tour.

 

Winner of the 2014 British Book Design and Production Award, this compelling book is a profound reminder of humanity’s struggle against disease.
