Stephen N. Joffe. Andreas Vesalius: The Making, the Madman, and the Myth. Bloomington, Indiana: Persona Publishing, 2009.
Terracotta goatskin bound with variations to the joint structure to allow for better movement and less damage to a heavy text. Native goatskin onlays based on an image in Vesalius’s De humani corporis fabrica. Gold number and letters are marked as in illustrations attributed to students of Titian. The gold dust across the binding refers loosely to the scenery behind the anatomical illustrations as well as the muscles and tendons in many of the illustrations. Title and author tooled in blind along the fore-edge of the top board. Calfskin doublures have remained plain to show the shoulder markings of the animal. Endpapers are Twinrocker handmade paper, double headbands woven in rust, beige, and burgundy silk.
