Piecing Together Human Anatomy In The Time of Covid-19

Resorting to jigsaw puzzles?

Like science?

Then you are in luck! Try the new Dr. Livingston’s Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles, based on art created by Mesa Schumacher, a Certified Medical Illustrator from Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Livingston’s Human Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles come in three volumes so far, a head, a thorax, and an abdomen. The maximum dimensions of each puzzle would make this a 1000 piecer for sure, but since they are not rectangles they run closer to 500-600 pieces. They are also not terribly hard. Some of the puzzle perimeters have a double edge: the actual edge of the puzzle, and the edge of the illustration (ie., skull) running close and in parallel, so that 12% or so of the puzzle practically does itself. Also, you can’t really be a good anatomical drawing and ahve the kind of vagueness that a harder puzzle tends to have. But that’s OK because you will want to do all of them in a short time anyway.

I believe there are plans to make a total of seven puzzles, but at the moment there are only the three mentioned above available.

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:
