About the Cover


Title: “Fig. 389”


By Stephanie Benjamin


Acrylic paint on canvas


After being accepted to medical school my parents gave me a Gray’s Anatomy textbook from 1908, signed by the original physician who owned the book. While flipping through the old and worn pages I came across Figure 389- “The arch of the aorta and its branches”.  My painting is based on that engraving. While working on this painting I thought about the original physician who owned the textbook and wondered what my own journey into medicine would bring.
