Inside in, x-rays of nature's hidden world, Jan Pual Schutten ; photography by Arie van 't Riet ; translation by Laura Watkinson - (hardcover)

"Did you ever wonder what a bee looks like underneath its furry coat? Did you know that a seahorse protects itself with both armor on the outside and a skeleton on the inside? Can you guess why a tree frog needs to use its eyes to swallow? With Inside In, photographer Arie van 't Riet gives us a rare chance to see beneath the surface of some of nature's most captivating creations--tiny insects, fascinating fish, intriguing reptiles and amphibians, beautiful birds, and marvelous mammals--with stunning, never-before-seen X-ray photographs. The photographer creates what he calls 'bioramas' by using low-energy X-ray techniques to capture these fascinating creatures, along with the delicate flowers, grasses, and plants in their natural environment. Informative and light-hearted text by Jan Paul Schutten helps us to understand what we're seeing, and to look more closely at the details and truly understand what makes these creatures remarkable. Inside In is of interest to anyone with a fascination for how creatures have evolved and adapted to their environment. Beyond that, the photographs themselves, in black-and-white and color, are exquisitely lovely. Inside In is a beautiful book that will be a treasure for readers of all ages."--, Provided by publisher
