Karolinska University Press
240 pages, Illustrated, 9 ½" x 11"
It would take thousands of words to explain the content of the 500 full color images found in this book. There are images from inside the body and inside cells, from a bullet captured in mid-air, plants, organisms found in water and air, minerals, technology, archaeology, satellite images, images from galaxies, historical images from the past 500 years and historical photography from the past 160 years.
The images range from rock carvings that are 4,000 years old to satellite images of Manhattan before and after September 11, 2001. From the first time lightning was captured on film to the skin of a shark. From a tornado over the Gulf of Mexico to the opening of a coronary artery. From a green diamond to the SARS virus. From a CT scan of a human to the birth of a redblood cell.
