Beautiful Science

Inspired by an article called "The Art of Science" on Amazon's Omnivoracious blog, we go microcosmic, cosmic, and everything in between with some book suggestions for the science-minded. The following books walk the line between art and science with their painstaking illustrations and detailed photography, taking readers on a fantastic voyage from the black dunes of Noachis Terra on Mars to the fragile mysteries of marine invertebrates, from living organisms 2,000 years and older to the “bumblebee bat”—the world’s smallest mammal.
