I'm a science journalist—I write about psychology—and I'm ordering letterpress business cards
My title on the cards will be "psychology writer." I'm looking for an image or symbol to put on my cards that will tie the whole thing together. I was thinking it would be cool to have something vintage or antique-looking instead of something modern and high-tech. Maybe an old line drawing or woodcut depicting the brain / the mind / psychology / the philosopher / the alchemist. Or maybe there's a famous work of art that would be perfect, or original art or diagrams from some old book of philosophy or science. Or maybe there's a sketch by Darwin or Jung or that would work. Something that goes with the title "psychology writer."
Thoughts? What's an interesting vintage psychology image I can put on my business cards?
