A unique view of the human body in stunning close-up.

The Human Body Close-up provides a spectacular visual experience of the human body and how it works -- as seen through a microscope. In more than 300 extraordinary close-up photographs, the book reveals the intimate details of the body's key systems and parts. These are the closest views that technology will allow.

Spectacular high-magnification images zoom in on the most amazing details of the human body. Spreads show a wider view, then a dazzling full-page high-magnification image of the subject, such as muscle tissue or a lung. Like a zooming X-ray, the subject is viewed from the outside to the inside and closer still until it no longer resembles the human body we know.

The book covers:

  • The body's building blocks
  • The body's surface systems
  • The skeleton
  • Muscles
  • The sensory organs
  • The nervous system
  • Respiration, blood and circulation
  • The immune system
  • Chemical messengers
  • Fueling the body
  • Reproduction
  • Human development.

With expert text and superb cutting-edge imagery, The Human Body Close-up is the definitive home reference for the entire family. It is also a beautiful companion for anyone in a medical or medicine-related field.

Editorial Reviews

John Clancy zooms in on our organs, compiling more than 300 images of the human body snapped at high magnification. They look amazing--but not particularly human. At times, leafing through the book feels like paging through images of deep-sea exploration.... The deeper we go, the more abstract it gets.... At 1,250x magnification, nerve cells have the dots, swirls and seemingly random smatterings of a Jackson Pollock painting. And it's all right there, inside us.
