Haeckel was, as it turns out, a rather repugnant individual. But these prints (places hand over heart): absolutely exquisite. ( )

Just once in a while, 5 stars aren't enough. This book is far more than 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 and medusae don't just inhabit scarcely-visible parts of our world, no they have their own world which we can barely glimpse into, as different and exotic as any science-fiction artwork.
These are disk jellyfish. Top right is Cassiopeia
If I wasn't at all interested in science, I would still want to own this book. Indeed, until I was forced to sell it (a good offer was made and, after all I am a bookseller, I can't hang on to my favourite items forever and I managed a year with this one) it was hidden on my private shelf where I could look at it almost every day.

Z loved this . . . scientist as artist and vice versa. ( )
