It’s been a while since I’ve posted any book reviews in English, so here’s one about Jenni Fagan’s The Panopticon, a frankly awesome book about fifteen-year-old Anais, who is sent to a home for chronic young offenders with blood on her clothes and no idea of how it got there (even though they keep telling her she’s just attacked a policewoman).
The book deserves a few trigger warnings (rape, self-harm, drugs, prostitution), but I’ve done my best to keep them out of the review itself.
I’d very much like to punch a feminist.
I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.

The Modern Anatomical Venus at Leiden’s Museum Boerhaave - Image Fotocredits: Koen Hauser, photography Hair and Make up, Luise van Huisstede, Model Georgina Verbaan
Just a few weeks ago, the new exhibition Amazing Models, on the Emotional, Medical and Cultural History of Anatomical Models opened at Leiden’s Boerhaave Museum. More info - http://www.museumboerhaave.nl/english/
Is it fashion, is it a glamor, or is it anatomy? In fact it’s all three. This modern day anatomical Venus , in style of the famous anatomical models from the Viennese Josephinum museum is a portrait of Dutch actress Georgina Verbaan.
She was photographed by Koen Hauser who has a large interest in anatomy, and is well known for this anatomy series. He combined an image of an original wax model from the Museum Boerhave collections with a glamorous photo of the model, thus reconstructing an image of the time when female anatomical models where not only about the anatomy of the body. Skilled hands of Florentine waxmodellers delivered beautiful, sensual and elegant models of the female body.
I AM SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE
It’s the uncanny valley. Help. I’ve fallen for The Modern Anatomical Venus and I can’t get up.
