Haeckel’s Art Forms from the Ocean
The tiny single-celled organisms known as radiolarians (or radiolaria) develop beautiful, intricate mineral skeletons that cover ocean floors throughout the world. Drawings of these microscopic life forms offer a rare and distinctive variety of artwork. Based on German biologist/artist Ernst Haeckel’s hard-to-find 1862 atlas of these seldom-seen creatures, this book and CD-ROM set presents a wealth of striking design options. 357 images.
