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.
