A Valentine's Day GIF[t]

A few months ago, I found several worse-for-the-wear pages of flap illustrations tucked into an old edition of Gray's Anatomy. What better way to show them off than in GIF form? Since one of the illustrations has some great chest cavity layers, here's our way of saying Happy Valentine's Day, from the bottom of our hearts! 

Update: Per special request, a slowed down version of the GIF for better study!

Feel like you missed the coloring fun? Nonsense! You can color our collections any time of the year. Check out the New York Academy of Medicine's handy list of all of the coloring books from participating institutions -- You'll have felt pen fodder for a year!
