    I envy you, Nina. That would be a set of books I would be interested in owning. I think Netter was naturally curious. Plus, he had access to a cadaver lab. Was he a physician? It seems to me he was. Now I want to read a biography on him. Or write one.I like your drawing. Really good work with that eyelid and nose.

    I need to see if my library, or the local university’s library, has Netter’s books so I can take a closer look! That’s a difficult angle/perspective to approach from; great job on tackling it!

    Nina, I do hope you keep up with this series. And of course I see textiles and stitching inspired by these drawings too. What’s next?

    Medical illustrations have always been fascinating and with such a long history. Nicely done.
