    The Sick Rose is a beautifully gruesome and strangely fascinating visual tour through disease in an age before colour photography. This stunning volume, featuring detailed illustrations of afflicted patients from some of the world's rarest medical books, forms an unforgettable reminder of mankind's struggle with disease. Incorporating historic maps, pioneering charts and contemporary case notes, Richard Barnett's overview reveals the fears and obsessions of an era gripped by epidemics.

    We are absolutely fascinated by this book. Resistance to its macabre charm is futile.

    Now Thames & Hudson and the amazing Wellcome Collection -- a free visitor destination for the incurably curious offering exhibitions and events that explore the connections between medicine, life, and art -- have teamed up to give you the chance to win one of three deliciously horrifying goodie bags.

    Each winner will receive a skeleton tote bag containing: a copy of The Sick Rose, a copy of Death: A Picture Album, a copy of Brains: Mind as Matter, a skeleton coaster set, three 'Get Well Soon' Sick Rose postcards, a brain system explanation tea towel and a skeleton hands mug. We are big enough to admit that we wanted to run away with the bags.

  • Win 100 Ideas

    blog image 100 Ideas that Changed Street Style is a look-by-look dissection of the key ideas that changed the way we dress - from the middle of the 20th century to the present day - explaining the most iconic items of clothing and how they were worn, what the look was born of, its cultural background, how it was received and how it still resonates in fashion today. The modern wardrobe owes its development not just to fashion designers in Paris or Milan but also to gangs and movements brought together by a shared appreciation of music, sport or a particular underground culture, and a certain style that defines membership. These styles have rocked establishments, expressed social division as much as they have united people, spread around the world and, above all, transformed dress for a wider public.

    Now you have the chance to win a complete set of the 100 Ideas series and feast your eyes on the biggest aspects of our visual culture, from film to graphic design and beyond. Just have a look at the photograph below and tell us which British subculture and style is depicted. Two runners-up will receive a copy of 100 Ideas That Changed Street Style. Competition ends on Monday 26 May midnight GMT. Good luck!

    Update -- winner: Meike Zane runners-up: Lilla Garayova, Pierre Eymery
