Migraine Art free pdf In their book "Migraine Art", authors Klaus Podoll and Derek Robinson provide descriptions of types of migraine visual phenomena, along with art images created by migraine sufferers that detail their visual experiences. The migraine art concept was developed as the rationale for a number of public competitions in the 1980s which encouraged artists, both amateur and professional, to illustrate the pain, the visual disturbances, and the effect migraines had on their lives.The book describes a comprehensive view of the migraine experience and covers such topics as migraine signs, symptoms, triggers, and treatments, as well as types of visual hallucinations and somatic sensations and experiences. Throughout the book are pieces of art created by the migraine sufferers themselves that exemplify each category of visual disturbance. A description of the migraine visual experiences of famous historical figures, such as Blaise Pascal and Lewis Carroll provide a historical background on the topic. The book also includes a history of four Migraine Art competitions and information about the Migraine Art collection.
