Welcome to the be. illustrated guides, a series that weaves together art and science to explore all the weird and wonderful things about health and wellbeing.
The be. illustrated guides bring you a rich and colourful introduction to different aspects of our health and wellbeing. Choose your topic of interest and embark on an illustrated journey, from practical info and quirky facts, to heart-warming true stories. Get a new perspective on the human body, and all the things that ail us and nourish us – then pass it on to your friends.
Take the human heart. In our first issue, we give you an peek at the inner workings of your chambers and arteries, taking you on a tour of the heart’s vital role in our lives. From keeping people alive with heart surgery, to the link between our feeling hearts and thinking minds, to comparing the hearts of humans and elephants, we take an unusual look at the most iconic symbol of all time.
