Our Art and Design students and staff may find the following website useful,
Art and Design Commons, which has over 32,000 full
text articles and has over 270,000 downloads.
It's fairly easy to browse as you can browse by related discipline, sub-discipline, institution
and author. There's a search box too; a search for 'Poster' produced 71 articles.
Using a new 3D CAT scanner, researchers at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in London have taken 3D scans of women wearing high heels. Consultant orthopaedic surgeon Andy Goldberg says that because all the body's weight is being forced onto the front of the feet, the toes get squashed , leading to bunions, clawed toes and other painful conditions. Yet, while a survey of foot patients at the hospital revealed that 57% of them suffered from severe pain from wearing bad shoes, 86% said they
found it difficult wearing comfortable shoes.
