On Thursday afternoon, library collections conservator Deborah Howe showed a tour group her most recent work, a set of mezzotints of anatomical figures from the 18th century.
The colorful images of bones, veins and organs set against a deep green background are stained with blood from their use in medical instruction. The valuable mezzotints will soon be available to students at Rauner Special Collections Library.
