Morbid Valentine: 'The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic'

Today on the Morbid Anatomy Museum's website, founder and creative director Joanna Ebenstein announces the May, 2016 publication of her new study, The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic, a ravishing outlier on our list, alongside cult curiosities like The Morbid Anatomy Anthology (edited by Ebenstein) and our own best-selling staff favorite, The Sick Rose: Disease and the Art of Medical Illustration by Richard Barnett. Stay tuned for news about spring launch events, lectures, signings, exhibitions and more!

Morbid Valentine: 'The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic'

Eberstein writes, "Morbid Anatomy began in 2007 as a research tool for an exhibition called Anatomical Theatre, which explored the uncanny allure of historical wax medical models. Of all those models, the most seductive and fascinating is life-sized, ecstatically posed Anatomical Venus."

Morbid Valentine: 'The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic'

"Since that time, the Anatomical Venus has served as both a guide and a muse, inspiring research and trips around the world; exhibitions, such as Exquisite Bodies at the Wellcome Collection; a variety of lectures and articles; and, as of May 24th, a brand new, hardcover, gorgeously designed, lavishly illustrated 224 page book entitled The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic…" To read more, continue to the Morbid Anatomy wesite.
