Immaculately researched

Victoria Tischler reviews 'This Way Madness Lies', by Mike Jay.

This extraordinary book was published to accompany the exhibition of the same name at the Wellcome Collection (September 2016–January 2017: see tinyurl.com/psychbedlam). If you were lucky enough to catch the exhibition, this wonderful text is a perfect companion; and if you missed it, the exquisite design combines graphic and text content, giving a flavour of the rich visual and scholarly material that
‘Bedlam’ contained.
