Human Bones: A Scientific and Pictorial Investigation by R. McNeill Alexander, Aaron Diskin

The worlds foremost authority on biomechanics now focuses on our bones in a beautifully illustrated book of colour photography combining expert knowledge of biomechanics and evolution with engaging discussion of aesthetics and philosophy concerning our most surprisingly important organ. Nothing seems as lifeless as a bone in a museum case, but the bones in our bodies are as truly alive as our muscles and guts. Alexander visits moments in every age of our lives, showing how bones grow, how they get damaged, and how they vary, as well as revealing how to read the story they tell of where we came from and what we did. Interactive, do-it-yourself experiments, such as investigating the lubrication of joints in the hand, are presented so readers can investigate their own skeleton. Aaron Diskins 115 colour photographs are informative works of art taken over weeks of shooting in the archives of museums including the American Museum of Natural History, as well as private collections including Maxilla and Mandible in New York City.
