Wild Design: Nature's Architect
This publication reveals the wonders of the natural world as never seen before, through the stunning, extraordinary, and functional forms created by animals, plants, and other organisms all around us.
Art and science beautifully intertwine in this fascinating exploration of structures and shapes found in nature, told through lively essays and masterful vintage illustrations. Lose yourself in the mesmerizing microscopic "glass" cases of jewellike diatoms. Sink into the mysterious underground fungal networks that shape the grand design of forests. Discover the surprisingly intricate and varied nests of birds. Wild Design reminds us that remarkable phenomena occur all around us—we just have to know how to find them.
