Pages are split translated in English, French and German. From editor's foreward: Anyone who is familiar with the various domains of the applied graphic arts with know that the present-day scientific illustrator is something of a wallflower compared with his historical predecessors and his more widely acclaimed colleagues from the fields of advertising, editorial art and book illustration. The function of scientific drawing is admittedly an essentially practical one: to inform, to explain and to instruct. But that does not prevent it from measuring up to aesthetic criteria. Filled with beautiful black and white and full color drawings. Some of the artists represented include: Karl Schmid, Arthur Lidov, Stanley Mason, and Paul Peck.
