Ernst Haeckel's series of incredibly detailed prints have influenced designers and artists for over a century. Collected in books such as the perennial bestsellers Art Forms in Nature and Art Forms from the Ocean, they now form the basis of a beautiful colouring book that is suitable for any age. Each page contains boldly outlined designs based on Haeckel's original illustrations of Radiolaria, Foraminifera and other forms of microscopic life; jellyfishes, starfishes, corals and other sea life; mosses, lichens, orchids and other plants. With nearly 100 pages to choose from, the variety of designs presented in the book is breathtaking. With colouring books quickly becoming a remedy for daily stress, this collection is certain to be a popular source for those seeking a relaxing pastime that is both artistic and satisfying.
