I love books that combine fun artwork with good information. Here’s a new guide that does just that:
Julia Rothman, Nature Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of the Natural World (North Adams, MA: Storey Publishing, 2015, 224 pp).
Publisher’s description Art and science mingle in Julia Rothman’s fascinating visual tour of the natural world. If you’ve ever wanted to see how mountains are formed or wondered about the life cycle of a mushroom or the different types of feather on a bird, you’ll delight in exploring Rothman’s drawings, diagrams, and dissections. Her spirited exploration of earth and water, flora and fauna will open your eyes to new views of nature’s wonders.
