What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

As we create ever more sophisticated tools to explore the micro and macro universe, it's easy to become detached from agape understanding and appreciation of what we can't see, feel, and sense. Felice Frankel's work brings those worlds within reach, so that we can appreciate not only the technical marvels but also the enormous beauty and infinite variety of creation, both natural and manmade.

Yo-Yo Ma

I'm pretty sure there has never been an instructional manualmore gorgeous than this one, nor more captivating to people (like me) who have no practical need for its instructions. Useful,enlightening, magnificent: what more could anyone want?

Kurt Andersen , author of Fantasyland and host of public radio's Studio 360

Felice Frankel shows us how to create photographic images that make complex things appear simple. No matter if she uses a camera or a scanner, a wide-angle or a microscope, she advocates clarity and achieves beauty. She works to delight.

Stefan Sagmeister , designer

Frankel is a pioneer in the communication of modern science through photography. With this wonderful book she presents an object of art as much as an instructive document. Each page is rich in visual aesthetics—but unlike most other works of art, here the artist tells her secrets.

Phillip Sharp , Institute Professor, MIT, Nobel laureate 1993 in Medicine and/or Physiology

The clearest way into science is through wonderment. In Picturing Science and Engineering, Frankel curates a stellar cabinet of scientific curiosities. For the first time, learning how to picture and picturing how to learn come together to enable, empower, inspire, and enlighten all sentient beings.

Neri Oxman , architect, designer, inventor

With the clarity of an expert and the passion of a true aficionado, Frankel once again proves to be crucial in bridging scientific discovery and public consciousness.

Paola Antonelli , Senior Curator, Architecture & Design, Director, Research & Development, The Museum of Modern Art
