Taking it all off

I guess there aren't too many jobs in which one might get a voice message such as the one I picked up after lunch this afternoon, in which a patron was looking for "the picture of the man holding his own skin." Luckily, I've been here long enough to know exactly what that meant. And I also know that it's already been digitized and placed online by the National Library of Medicine, at their very excellent site Historical Anatomies on the Web.

So, if you aren't eating lunch presently, or you have an equally curious clientele, check out the Valverde print here.
