Here’s all you really need to know about the recent design book title “The Where, The Why and The How”: it combined the answers to everyone’s favorite scientific questions with artists illustrating the answer (or the question). Um… I think I’ve been having a recurring dream about this and it’s the most wonderful dream of all time, only it’s not a dream, it’s real!
Taken from the publisher, Chronicle Books’, website: “A science book like no other, The Where, the Why, and the How turns loose 75 of today’s hottest artists onto life’s vast questions, from how we got here to where we are going. Inside these pages some of the biggest (and smallest) mysteries of the natural world are explained in essays by real working scientists, which are then illustrated by artists given free rein to be as literal or as imaginative as they like. The result is a celebration of the wonder that inspires every new discovery. Featuring work by such contemporary luminaries as Lisa Congdon, Jen Corace, Neil Farber, Susie Ghahremani, Jeremyville, Jon Klassen, Jacob Magraw, and many more, this is a work of scientific and artistic exploration to pique the interest of both the intellectually and imaginatively curious.” Eeep!
