Atlas of Human Anatomy and Three-Dimensional Treatment Scoliosis

It’s cold in Philadelphia today – hovering around freezing – so it feels like the right time to don some legwarmers, make a cup of tea, and curl up with the newest additions to my bodywork library. Opie is my inspiration in the getting cozy department; he’s made himself a warm nest in the pile of laundry that’s about to go in the wash.

The book on scoliosis treatment I talked about here has made it to my house (Arjun, I promise to return it to the UPenn Library by its due date even though you will have moved to Seattle by then). My parents gave me Human Anatomy from DK publishers; it’s giant images are perfect for showing to clients. And my partner’s mom gave me Frank Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy for my birthday earlier this month (thank you, Aviva!). It’s a definitive, meticulously illustrated guide to the body whose beauty makes it a pleasure to read and use for research. I mean, just look at the clarity of those illustrations:

If you need me, I’ll be at home, reading.
