Art and anatomy converge in an illustrated manual:
These human figures are more than utilitarian: walking against a real background, posed as if revealing to our eyes the unseen beauty and wonder of human anatomy; they also reflect an increasingly artistic approach to the human body.
The dissection manual of Mondino was printed with many illustrations in the commentary on Mondino published in 1521 by Berengario da Carpi of Bologna. Those illustrations are reprinted in this edition. The Printing Revolution made possible an increased use of visual representations.
