Description


A journey into everyday life through spectacular microscopic images.

This substantial volume brings together extraordinary images produced through the latest technologies in microphotography. Most of the 205 stunning, full-color photographs have been taken using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), allowing us to see our world as never before.

Each image is a close-up that reveals remarkable forms, shapes and colors. The book is divided into six chapters that cover:

  • Micro-organisms
  • Botany
  • The human body
  • Zoology
  • Minerals
  • Technology.

Every spread includes complete, informative captions that identify the photograph and describe both the image and the way in which it was captured.

With its stunning full-color photographs and text written in clear and accessible language, Microcosmos provides a fascinating journey of discovery.
