Compendium of psychological curiosities

Picture 28
Rick Prelinger says:
Stockholm professor David Katz assembled his Psychological Atlas in 1948, pulling together classic and curious images from the history of myth and psychology. This is an amazing, bizarre collection that blurs the distinction between what we consider science and pseudo-science. Among the images are classic visual and perceptual illusions; comparisons of the facial expressions of meat-eaters and vegetarians; artworks by blind people; visualizations of personality "types"; chiromancy; and conditioned reflexes in action. Art students visiting our library home in on this book.
