The exquisite geometry of nature comes to life in Seeds: Time Capsules of Life, a collaborative effort by artist Rob Kesseler and seed morphologist Wolfgang Stupp. Their natural history of seeds is stunningly illustrated with close-up photography obtained from scanned electron micrographs of seeds. The book also makes a great reference for naturalists, artists, and graphic designers.
