Product description

Review

"This highly browsable volume puts a new lens to the long-time relationship between art and science.... Each entry admirably articulates a complex topic in concise and engaging ways.... Volvovski, Rothman, and Lamothe offer a stunning collection that reimagines scientific wonder and that is an eloquent argument for slow living in an age of immediate access." -- Science

"Like a science book published by The New Yorker. Images range from 1980s textbooks homages to dinosaur watercolors to Escherian mind-benders to straight-up trippy, surrealist work that would be at home on an album cover." -- FastCoDesign

"Promises to pick you up at the front cover, delight and fascinate you in a flurry of eye poppers, and drop you off better informed 168 pages later." -- Discovermagazine.com

"The genius of the book is its brevity and wit, and the room it leaves for imagination." - TheAtlantic.com

"If you're looking for fun facts illustrated by some amusing imagery, it does the job well." - Steven Heller, The New York Times

"As a lover of the intersection of art and science, I find myself more excited about The Where, the Why, and the How: 75 Artists Illustrate Wondrous Mysteries of Science than I've been about a book in ages. In this gem, as intellectually stimulating as it is visually stunning, creative trifecta Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski and Matt Lamothe invite some of today's most celebrated artists to create scientific illustrations and charts to accompany short essays about the most fascinating unanswered questions on the minds of contemporary scientists." -- Brain Pickings

"A party for your left brain and your right brain." -- Boing Boing

"The result is scientific, yet with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Why do we blush? includes a discussion of blood vessels and the sympathetic nervous system, along with a drawing of a naked man with his internal organs exposed (you'd blush too)."- - Studio 360 Blog
