Utopean dreams // phrenology
from ‘Character From The Face’ by Jacques Penry 1956
Taken from a typically dubious book of phrenology. Mapping self and identity across physiognomy. One tool used by the Victorians to ‘scientifically’ justify the lower orders place at the bottom of their society. Clearly continued by this individual into the 1950’s and echoing some of the beliefs embedded in eugenics.
