Close Up: Microscopic Photographs of Everyday Stuff
Frank B. Edwards. Micro photos by the University of Guelph
48 pages, 8 x 8 inch
is as simple as it seems. At first glance, the bug shown on the front
cover seems quite ordinary. It is small enough to sit on the end of a
pencil and we cerrtainly would not be surprised to see a member of its
species in our house. Yet, when magnified 82 times, we can see its
mandibles and the eight eyes that dot its head. Close Up
is a book that explores the world around us through the eyes of a
scanning electron microscope -- a machine that can take us a million
times closer to a whole lot of really small things. Readers get a
headline clue so they can guess what is pictured, followed by a
detailed description. 33 black and white photos.
