Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

An anatomical illustration from Andreas Vesalius’s ground-breaking work, De humani corporis fabrica, or “On the fabric of the human body.” De Corporis Fabrica far surpassed any of the anatomical atlases that had been published at the time, benefiting from Renaissance advances in printing and visual representation, as well as Vesalius’s direct involvement in the preparation of the figures. With his emphasis upon the human body as an essentially corporeal structure functioning according to mechanistic principles, Vesalius made significant contributions toward the advancement of medical science beyond the pre-modern systems of Galen and Aristotle.
