Love hearts anyone?

On display in the reading room over the next few days, as part of our February spotlight exhibition Art of the Unseen: Anatomical Illustration in the Special Collections, we give you an alternative to the pierced velvet red hearts so prevalent during this most lovestruck of weeks. Anatomically correct images from across C19th Europe await.

Ex.: The vessels of the human body / Quain Jones, ed. (London : Printed for Taylor and Walton, 1846)

If you would like to view the spotlight exhibition, please contact the staff of the Special Collections Reading Room in the Hardiman Research Building at specialcollections@nuigalway.ie.
The spotlight exhibition can also be viewed in its entirety on the digital display wall in the Hardiman Foyer during the month of February.
