Science is really beautiful. With original illustrations that deftly explain the strange-but-true world of science, Seeing Science offers a curated ride through the great mysteries of the universe. Artist and lay scientist Iris Gottlieb explains among other things: neap tides, naked mole rats, whale falls, the human heart, the Uncertainty Principle, the ten dimensions of string theory, and how glaciers are like Snickers bars. With quirky visual metaphors and concise factual explanations, she offers just the right amount of information to stoke the curious mind with a desire to know more about the life forces that animate both the smallest cell and the biggest black hole. Seeing Science illustrates, explicates, and celebrates the marvels of science as only art can.

About Chronicle Books

Chronicle Books is an independent publisher based in California that has been making things since the Summer of Love. We are inspired by the enduring magic of books, and by sparking the passions of others. As soon as you pick up our publishing, we want you to be able to tell that what you're holding comes from us. We consider every detail, and ask questions like these: does the design support and enhance the content? How does it feel in your hands? What special touches can we add to make it an object you'll treasure? We apply this approach to everything we make, whether it’s a book, journal, game, ebook, or our newest invention. Based in San Francisco, our headquarters are in an old maritime machine shop and warehouse.
