La terre: evolution de la vie a sa surface; son passe, son present, son avenir, 1893.

(In other words, The Earth: evolution of life on its surface; its past, its present, its future.)

The periodic table gorgeously re-imagined, 1949-style.

Are there more of these? There certainly are.

More great illustrations from Die CephalopodenYou can read the whole thing on archive.org (and if you don’t read German, you have our permission to skip to the pictures).

Anthropogenie by APS Museum on Flickr.

"This image from Ernst Haeckel’s 1874 The Evolution of Man shows comparisons between cross-sections of different animals and their embryos at different stages of development. For Haeckel the development of an embryo retraced the evolutionary history of the animal. The different colors represent the four types of tissues out of which all the organs formed.”

Cellular Generation and Intracellular Diversion

Abstracted cell biology by Regina Valluzzi


At first glance, these watercolors may appear to unconsciously mimic our cellular structures: Nucleus, organelles, transport vesicles and membranes. But dig deeper, and decipher the detailed pen and ink additions. You’ll see the lipid bilayers, like playful stick figures set foot-to-foot. You’ll see molecular chains packaged and floating about. And the single points of ink peppered throughout … any of countless ions and salts whose balance provides our cells with the ingredients for chemical life.

These fantastic prints can be purchased here (or even the painted originals). Support great science artists!

Love these.
