You say anatomy, I say botany....

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Over the past several years I've developed a love for vintage anatomical etchings/drawings and botanical drawings.  Much to my delight, many are available without copyright restrictions because of their pre 1921 age.
Call me crazy (it wouldn't be the first time), but I love combining them together having first developed an attraction to this when I was introduced to some of  Richard Russell's collages on Flickr.
