Description
The author of The Universe and How to See it and Hubble: Window on the Universe here turns his aesthetic explorations from the infinite cosmos to the incredibly tiny world of the microscope. The spectacular, often startling high-magnification images here zoom in on the amazing details of plants, animals, and natural features of our planet. Among the 134 subjects—each portrayed in a page-filling photograph with one or two smaller views—are fly eyes, dragonfly wings, sharkskin, and cheetah muscle fibers; intricately beautiful phytoplankton, radiant tree rings, and glowing beads of sage oil atop purple stalks on a sage leaf; tiny shells embedded in limestone, tree-like rays of frost, and a perfect snowflake.
