Description

The magnificent prints of Ernst Haeckel, who captured the amazing forms of the natural world, spring to life in this exciting pop-up book that reveals the vibrant intricacy of his work. The book Art Forms in Nature is a collection of prints, made by the scientist Ernst Haeckel, of an enormous variety of flora and
fauna from the sea-including microscopic Radiolaria, starfish,
and jelly fish. Since Prestel published it in 1998, the book has
been a favorite with artists, designers, illustrators, and anyone
who enjoys the wondrous forms of the natural world. Now
paper engineer Maike Biederstaedt has transformed Haeckel's
transcendent work into a three-dimensional book that allows
readers to appreciate Haeckel's vivid colors, exceptional
precision, and fascination with patterns and geometry. This
stunning book features seven pop-ups that allow readers to
see nature's brilliance the way that Haeckel did--as marvelous,
mathematically based creations that support his theory of the
unity of all living things. Certain to appeal to his huge variety of
fans, this pop-up version of a timeless classic will be treasured
for years to come.
