Illustrations have long played an integral role in the fields of science and medicine. This website provides a tantalizing glimpse into the New York Public Library's _Seeing is Believing_ exhibition of illustrations and photographs used to convey "scientific and medical concepts over the last 700 years." The website features a limited collection of rich images to represent four basic book illustration processes: relief printing, intaglio printing, planographic printing, and photography. The site provides an overview for each process, and specific information about each image. Site visitors interested in learning more will appreciate the nice collection of related links, the list of recommended publications, and information about the New York Public Library's Science and Medicine Collections.
