About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Heaven and Earth presents images we can't see with our naked eyes, moving from the ultra-small (the first photo traces the paths of subatomic particles) to the cosmically large (the closing photos are images of entire galaxies). This easily could have turned into an aseptic catalogue of things great and small, much like a high school science book. With a keen eye for color and composition, though, the authors instead assembled a vibrant collection of captivating images that are visually stunning in their own right but made even more intriguing when viewed in the context of the work as a whole. The universe truly is a marvel of complexity and this work captures that complexity better than any I've ever seen.
Caveat: I'm discussing the hardcover; I haven't seen the paperback, so I can't vouch for its quality.
See microscopic organisms,and colonies. Loaded with over 350 illustrations, a short story on how the picture was aquired, and a description of the object, all pictures very artistic. This book will open your mind to science and soothe your senses.
Enjoy satellite pictures of foreign lands. Get the scoop on the latest astronomy findings. Over 350 illustrations, each one worth admiration. This book sets the mind and senses at ease.
