While perusing the NYTImes Home section a few weeks ago, I admired the Catskills farmhouse and collections of artist and antique shop owner Sean Scherer. In this photo, taken from the NYTimes site, you can see a framed illustration (at the the top) of the head, skull and brains. I have some very similar lift-the-flap anatomical illustrations culled from 100 year old medical textbooks. I will be bringing them to the flea over the next few weeks. They can be dismantled and matted as you see in the photo. I have several different ones to choose from- some depict the internal organs, eyes and ears. They have to be seen in person to be appreciated- they are amazing in their detail, color and design.

Good question – the link is:
I have a lot of great stuff up there – but for right now, I will be selling these anatomical illustrations only at the flea “in person”. I will be in Dumbo on Sunday – hope to see you there!
