This lavishly illustrated full-color art book depicts more than a century of nursing practice worldwide through more than 580 postcards. The postcards reflect nursing practice from the 1890s to the present and represent more than 65 countries, particularly the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Japan. The images within the book represent the complete range of artist-drawn and photographic interpretations of 20th century nursing, including children's illustrations, art nouveau, modernism, photographs of royalty and performers as nurses, and graphic aspects of nursing history which have not been previously accessible.
Narrative chapter introductions provide context for the images, and legends offer insights into the pictures. Endnotes and a bibliography offer additional support to anyone interested in more detail on each postcard.
