Twenty-four inspirational designs from nature to color.
Inspirations from Nature: An Adult Coloring Book Featuring the Illustrations of Ernst Haeckel features twenty-four images from the great biologist to color. Printed on high-quality, uncoated paper at a generous 8 1/2 x 11, this coloring book for grownups is sure to delight coloring enthusiasts of all levels. Ernst Haeckel (1834-1915) was a very influential biologist who happened also to be a brilliant illustrator. For this exciting new coloring book for grown-ups, we have selected pictures from his Art Forms in Nature, the loveliest of his many great books. Haeckel was in love with symmetry, appropriate for his work as a scientist. He found the beauty in all life-forms, whether one-celled or incredibly complex and this conviction is fully revealed in these images. Most of the plates are of undersea life, including jellyfish and octopi, but whatever Haeckel show us takes us into the realm of the underlying order and t beauty of nature. These images offer both challenges and a sense of peace to colorists of all skill levels.
