Art Forms in Nature: The Prints of Ernst Haeckel

From the German biologist, philosopher, and artist who coined the terms ecology, phylogeny, and protozoa. Art Forms in Nature is a book of roughly 100 prints Haeckel made. These are compilations of 19th century natural history and biological science, of symmetry and arrangement, of protozoa and mammals, fossils and sea anemones, jellyfish and antelopes. Some Haeckel did in color, others were black and white.
