Bombay Bicycle Club's anatomical cover art

I caught a glimpse of a poster whilst rushing for the jubilee line today and fell just a little bit in love with an artist. It was for the new Bombay Bicycle club album, A Different Kind of Fix, and the cover (below) is an artistic impression of the brain, oesophagus and nasal passage.

I came home to research the artisit and found that it is by illustrator Katie Scott. On her blog she also has photos of the album interior (below) which I think is also beautiful and can imagine similar prints adorning the walls of my new flat!

Katie has amassed an eclectic collection of anatomical and nature-themed illustrations, some intended to be more accurate interpretations than others. I particularly like the intricate detail in her work and her subtle use of colour. There are loads of illustrations to look through on her blog or website and you can also show your support for her work or see what she's up to by following her on twitter.
