Anatomy as Illuminated Manuscript

The Institute for the Future of the Book has a beautiful post up about the comparisons that can be made between the illuminated manuscripts of old and medical anatomy illustrations:
The text alone would have been less than useful to me and the illustration without the text would not been enough either.
Poster Kim White also provides insight into the digital future of such illumination. I love the drawings she provides, especially this one.
