Dr. Bacteria and the Viruses

Images from Le Livre de la Sante by Joseph Handler (Monte Carlo: Andre Sauret, 1968), volume 15: Bacteries – Virus – Radiations.


This volume may turn out to be my favorite. I particularly love Elisa Patergnani's viruses, Roman Cieslewicz's bombs, and Folon's bacteria comic. I hadn't expected Milton Glaser to show up, but maybe should have: In 2008 I posted the Apollinaire, Vian, and Gogol illustrations he did for this publisher in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.


I had to use Dr. Bacteria in the title after reading about him tonight.
