The Spanish-based company repurposes the pages of vintage dictionaries by turning them into canvases for beautiful floral anatomical illustrations. Such detailed diagrams of the human body can often look a little grisly, but the clever use of colorful flowers brings some much-needed warmth to the otherwise harsh images. The floral additions turn the featured bodies into striking bouquets that not only look beautiful – they also teach us something at the same time. See for yourself in the pictures below, then head on over to their Etsy page where you can find the full range there.
