Product description

Explore the wonders of science through the eyes of artists. 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, mysteries of the universe are explained in essays by real working scientist, which are then illustrated by artists given free rein to be as literal or as imaginative as they like. The result is a whimsical celebration of the wonder that inspires every new discovery, and a breathtaking tour of new work by contemporary visionaries, that will pique your curiosity and make you marvel at the power of both science and art.
