A medical text Ginko would recognize

by dm00
JapanStyle blogs an old medical text-book, and the images remind me of Mushishi.

The hat keeps medicine off its head. It likes sake, though.

Ginko would be right at home.


An image search turns up more about them at Pink Tentacle.

On the right, the Mushi of spicy food

Updated to make the relationship between the imagery and Mushishi clearer.

      Ginko is the lead character in Mushishi. The images are from an old Japanese text, and have some of the feeling of Ginko’s notebooks (follow the links to Pink Tentacle and JapanStyle for more info).

    They look cute, despite their pathogenicity. I read through the article you linked and I wonder how did they know the appearances of these critters? Their looks are scarcely related to the symptoms they produce. @_@
