Curious Apothecary; A screen-printed artists publication

By Nicki McNaney

Abstract

After interviewing the archivist and investigating the historical apothecary ephemera found at the Thackery medical museum in Leeds, I created a number of individual illustrated responses to the information discovered to record and comment on the unusual medical practices of the 18thcentury.\ud The work invites the viewer to create their own interpretation of the curious nature of the medical practices that took place in the 18th century and challenges the traditional processes of illustration through printmaking, while exploring its application in a more contemporary artists book format

Topics: Ephemera, Historical apothecary, Medical practices, Eighteenth century, Illustration
