    Just once in a while, 5 stars aren t enough This book is farthan amazing, it s stupendously, fantastically, magically wonderful and that isn t hyperbole The book, as the introduction makes clear, is a work of scientific illustrations of primitive organisms But the illustrations are other worldly both in form and in the feeling they give that rotifers, protozoans an

    Not so mind blowing in these days of high resolution microscopy, but still pretty amazing from a technical drawing viewpoint And interesting aesthetically if you leaf through and the hydra and jellies and pinecones all sort of blur together as form rather than animals.This Dover edition does not reproduce the text.

    Lately, I have been indulging in scientific technical drawingsandI like the discipline in that long forgotten way you feel when you re a hardcore fangirl screaming internally upon seeing something you like It s that bad This was really great, but most importantly it will last for archiving, referencing, modifications, not just a book that ll sit on the shelf once perused

    I bet H.R Giger has a copy of this book Old drawings of microbes, animals and such in a very distinct style The microbes and some of the sea creatures have an especially alien look to them There s at least one free digital version and if you insist on a paper copy get something like the Prestel edition so you get the color plates.

    Art forms in nature explores some of the most representative works of Ernst Haeckel a painter drawer designer born in 1834 in Prussia He dedicated his talent to faithfully reproduce some of the patterns he observed in nature and looking to his works one can only be amazed on how others that call themselves original just copied Mother Nature to create their designs take for exampl

    Somehow this didn t wow me as I d expected The material is interesting re art, science, nature, and philosophy Haeckel the zoologist is just as interesting as Haeckel the artist I thought I d adore the prints, but while I enjoyed them, I didn t love them The text accompaniment, appearing early in the book before the many pages of prints, is interesting.I m not sure why I didn t feel


  8. says:

    Gorgeous prints, as virtually everyone agrees, but the first of the two introductory essays really fell flat The second essay was moderately interesting Too bad someone like Andrea Wulf didn t write an intro Her chapter on Haeckel in her recent book,

    A Maz Ing A Stound Ing Do words fail me I fail words I wdn t rate this bk, it s invaluable wch isn t to say w o value Haeckel is my new favorite artist I discovered him thanks to a documentary called Proteus A Nineteenth Century Vision by David LeBrun I loved the movie If you check it out, make sure to also check out The Making of PROTEUS wch I, as a film vaudeo maker, found particularly

    100 plates of beauty Ernst Haeckel gave us something that we can, like Escher, forever look at Escher inscribed them in Nature, giving birth to what he saw in his mind Haeckel engraved what he saw in Nature.
