Atlas of a Different Nature

Atlas of the Human Body by Takeo Takahashi

For the atlas of the week, I found this unusual atlas intriguing.  This atlas of the human body is structured just like any world atlas. It gives thorough explanations of the major systems and organs of the human body and does its job to “map” out the composition of the body just as most maps do of land. It pinpoints exact locations of body parts and identifies general information, common illnesses, and many facts about the different parts of the human body.  Most people would never think to map out the human body, but this form of a map is so similar to a map that might describe landforms throughout the world, I thought this completely different take on an atlas was compelling.
