WARNING: Not Safe for Work … or for Your Exam in HematologyThe Morphology of Human Blood Cells (1956)
Dorothy Sturm’s beautiful watercolors are difficult to distinguish from an actual microphotograph (except perhaps they are clearer and more detailed than a micrograph, and certainly superior to images from the 1950’s).

Sturm’s watercolor on paper illustrations, drawn directly from Wright-stained smears prepared by [microbiologists], depicted normal, pathological and infectious hematology with a clarity, detail and beauty that photomicrography of the 1950’s simply couldn’t approach. JAMA, in a review of the first edition, even called her work “of exceptional quality.”

[5] Megakarocytes and thrombocytes
