For the first time ever, both editions (1543 and 1555) of Andreas Vesalius’ masterpiece “De Humani Corporis Fabrica” are accessible in the English language. They were critically compared and published in a modern layout transforming the Renaissance anatomical atlas for the 21st-century reader.
With his woodcut illustrations, Vesalius set new standards in creating a dialogue between the written and the visual. To enable the reader to really study Vesalius’ woodcut illustrations, the images were digitally enhanced and often enlarged.
