    I am a fan of old scientific diagrams- some a amazing art!

    I wanted to pass along some I have found.

    Ok, there is an old, incredibly racist book, "Crania America" that is full of amazingly well done skull diagrams, way too many for me to post.

    Here is where you see the whole book:

    And here are some images from it:

    Thanks for posting. I've been on a search for good references like these for a series of pen and ink pieces I've been working on. These are great!
