San Francisco based physician-scientist and designer, Dr. Stephen Gaeta has just released a new typography lung print titled, Airway, in his series of popular science typography prints. Sold exclusively at the Street Anatomy Gallery Store, Airway features text from the 1628 treatise Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus (An Anatomical Exercise on the Motion of the Heart and Blood in Living Beings) by William Harvey, in which he first postulates the circulation of blood from the right side of the heart through the lungs into the left side before perfusing the rest of the body. A truly significant realization in medical history turned turned into a beautiful design.
Unlike most PhD’s, Stephen didn’t just want to hang a diploma on his wall after completing his dissertation on cardiac arrhythmia. Instead he used the words of his dissertation to create an image of a heart as a “visually appealing testament to his work.” The diploma heart was redesigned using an 1809 monograph on cardiology (shown further down). He continues to create typographical anatomy and science images using text from classic scientific masterpieces. You can see and purchase the entire series exclusively at the Street Anatomy Gallery Store! [UPDATE: SOLD OUT]
