Come to Life

I had to share this fantastic piece of work by Chris Rynn who has brought the cover of my book on William Burke to life.

Chris performed the original facial reconstruction of William Burke for my Book cover about the murderers who supplied bodies for anatomical dissection in the 1820’s in Edinburgh.

The reconstruction was based on the skull which is in the Anatomical Museum of the University of Edinburgh and also the life and death masks which are also held in the museum.

The new AI that was released last week has allowed a sense of life to be given to the reconstruction.

If you want to find out more about Burke you can get hold of the book on the shop page here or on amazon.
