From basic mathematical and physical formulas that govern much of our world to the components of matter; from the structure of the cosmos to that of the human body-the discoveries of scientists over the last millennium have been remarkable.
Sciencia gathers together Useful Mathematical and Physical Formulae, Q.E.D, Essential Elements, Evolution, The Human Body, and The Compact Cosmos, six elegant and insightful short volumes spanning the realms of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, evolution, and astronomy, offering invaluable information to today's readers. Lavishly illustrated with engravings, woodcuts, and original drawings and diagrams, Sciencia will inspire readers of all ages to take an interest in the interconnected knowledge of the modern sciences.
Beautifully produced in thirteen different colors of ink, Sciencia is an essential reference and an elegant gift.
Wooden Books was founded in 1999 by designer John Martineau near Hay-on-Wye. The aim was to produce a beautiful series of recycled books based on the classical philosophies, arts and sciences. Using the Beatrix Potter formula of text facing picture pages, and old-styles fonts, along with hand-drawn illustrations and 19th century engravings, the books are designed not to date. Small but stuffed with information. Eco friendly and educational. Big ideas in a tiny space. There are over 1,000,000 Wooden Books now in print worldwide and growing.

For the beginning scientist or for anyone with an interest in science, this book is an incredible look into all things scientific,, an amazing introduction. I bought it for my 14-year-old daughter and she is devouring it. I have found it interesting to browse through as well: not enough information to overwhelm, but just enough to invite more reading and study and questions. Can't get better than that.
Excellent Exposition of the rudiments of the Sciences. The detail and drawings are maverlous. For those of us not necessarily "Scientific" this book provides what I think is a wonderful explanation of what Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and others are bascally all about. I heartily recommend it to those curious about "Existence".
