Review:

"Amazing pictures, a fascinating text... A book of utmost value."-Sir Patrick Moore, Astronomer "Unambiguously beautiful."-The Saturday Mercury "These pictures help us appreciate that we are part of something truly immense and yet beautifully and minutely detailed."-Metro "Each photo is accompanied by a concise and informative caption, which elucidates but never lessens the impact of these breath-taking, bizarre, miraculous revelations of an unseen world... You are guaranteed many happy interludes of reflection and instruction with this visually hypnotic book."-Judith Bumpus, The Art Newspaper "Once you've seen a snowflake magnified 6500 times or an x-ray image of the sun, you will never look at the world in quite the same way. This beautifully illustrated book reveals the startling, hidden beauty of our universe."-The Good Book Guide "For transcendendant beauty, buy Heaven & Earth: Unseen by the Naked Eye."-Evening Standard "Visually, the book is a work of art but the subject is scientifically fascinating... An exceptional book."-Focus "An immaculately presented source of information... A unique exploration of the boundless relationship between science and art."-Creative Review "Heaven and Earth sends us back with renewed vision to the heaven and earth in which we live, more able, as the poet William Blake wrote: 'To see a world in a grain of sand/And a heaven in a wild flower/Hold infinity in the palm of your hand/And eternity in an hour."-Times Education Supplement "Both educational and inspirational... A breathtaking journey."-Geographical Magazine
