It has been a while since I’ve indulged my love of illustrations in medical publications. If you’ve been missing this kind of post, here’s one from the booklet A Doctor Discusses Care of the Back, illustrated by John La Porta, Budlong Press Company, Chicago, IL, 1975. More from this booklet to come.

What’s On The Table, What’s Being Served, by Johnie T. McDonald. A self-published collection of poetry from 1996. I picked up a copy of this rather slender book (considering its subject) at an estate sale yesterday, from the home of the late Johnie T. McDonald. The people running the sale were giving away copies of this and another book by McDonald - a nice gesture, as it seemed that there were many undistributed copies of both books that had been left behind.

The interior cover (once you remove the fold over outer jacket) from Flip-Flop Prophets by Owen Plummer. Published in 2008 by Le Dernier Cri. This electric silkscreen book features a series of full body figures like this one. Aside from a penis or two, this one almost feels like a children’s book.

One last page from die Puppe by Nuvish, published by Le Dernier Cri. Undated. It’s tempting to just scan the whole damn book, because it’s so good but I’ll stop with this page, which is one of my favorites. More great stuff by Nuvish here.

A typically amazing page from die Puppe by Nuvish, published by Le Dernier Cri. Undated. The colors here really vibrate when you see the book in person. More great stuff by Nuvish here.

Scanned from the 1972 book Human Figure Drawings in Adolescence by Mollie S. Schildkrout, M.D., I. Ronald Shenker, M.D. and Marsha Sonnenblick, M.S. I have posted many more pages from this book here. 
This post is a Public Collectors Request Line fulfillment for moon-thing, who requested weird children’s drawings. In this book, the analysis by an adult always seems much weirder than the work of each adolescent.

Sample page featuring a talking churro from the subversive Mexican publication Diccionario De Albures Illustrado by Carlos Chávez. Printed in Mexico City in April, 2000.

This is a bonus Public Collectors Request Line fulfillment for the great Tumblr eggsackley whose wonderfully broad request was “mini comics? cartoony illustrations or ads? record covers/flyers illustrated the same way? drug/spiritual book/happening illustrations?”
