When Ernst Haeckel drew the illustrations of microbes, he was doing it for science, to help to introduce the world to micro-organisms. Little did he know that his illustrations would be compiled in a book by one of the largest art publishers in the world: Taschen.

However, once you take a look at pages from the book and discover the beautiful illustrations of Haeckel, you quickly understand that scientific illustration can be a real art form. The work of the scientist is combined in a fascinating book of 450 plates with his drawings.
