Excerpt from a review in JAMA, 2012:
Bones Books & Bell Jars is a gorgeous photographic tour of the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia as well as a creative tour de force... The author of Bones Books & Bell Jars applies an artist's eye along with a physician's training in capturing the essence of the curious, and at times astounding, medical matter contained in the collections of the Mütter Museum. Cameras do not lie: Bones Books & Bell Jars is a thing of beauty.

From the author's website:
Bones Books & Bell Jars, a new photography book by fine art photographer Andrea Baldeck, offers a contemporary fusion of art and medicine, recalling an era when artists and physicians collaborated to educate aspiring medical students and share information with other medical practitioners. Baldeck was given free rein to mine the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia’s vast collection of pathological specimens, anatomical models, surgical instruments, illustrated textbooks and other 19th century artifacts, to create her “cabinet of wonders” inspired still life photographs.
