Book recommendation: Le Monde

December 16, 2013

On the web site of the French newspaper Le Monde, Fritz Kahn is first in a list of science book recommendations. Entitled “The science of beautiful books”, the article points out eight new publications and begins with a description of the “beautiful” Kahn monograph. The reviewers write that in a time when imaging techniques can generate depictions of the human body down to cell-structure levels, Kahn’s illustrations may appear outdated or even incorrect. But the illustrations selected for the Kahn book – offering a great variety in technique and style – allow the reader to (re-)discover Fritz Kahn as a creative and humorous jack of all trades.
