About this book

Our bodies are amazing. The microscopic elements of the human body are profoundly fascinating – and also beautiful. We unearth some of the most wonderful microscopic images of the human body ever created, now made possible by technology. We get to see the wonder of our brains, our cells, our veins, our hormones, even our diseases and the medicines to treat us. The images are as beautiful as any art. This stunning collection of images can be enjoyed purely as a visual voyage but also as a way to understand more of the science behind the image. Whether it's the work of a white blood cell, the power of human hormones, the tiny hairs on our arms, the movement of human cancer cells, the jagged edges of caffeine crystals, or the wonderful shapes of nerve cells, the powerful images will draw you into discovering more about the human body. Each image will include the scale of the photography as well as the scientific details in layman's terms.
