Anatomicum, written by University of Edinburgh Lecturer in Anatomy, Dr Jennifer Paxton and beautifully illustrated by Katy Wiedemann, takes the reader on an exciting journey through the Museum of Anatomy, exploring the body systems and organs in wonderful detail.

Jennifer attended a sell-out event at the Wellcome Collection, London on the 12th September where she spoke about her inspiration for Anatomicum and the process of writing a text for the public.

Anatomicum is released on general sale from the 19th September.
