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
- The sensory organs
- The nervous system
- Respiration, blood and circulation
- The immune system
- Chemical messengers
- Fueling the body
- 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.
