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:
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.

An astonishing assemblage of trillions of busy cells dedicated to an immense array of processes, the human body is beautiful on a microscopic level, as revealed in this mind-blowing volume of hundreds of dazzling color photographs.... These pictures of nature's living lace, calligraphy, ceramics, stained glass, and tapestries are as informative as they are exquisite.... This striking volume greatly enhances our appreciation and impulse to care for our phenomenal physical selves. (Donna Seaman Booklist 2011-12-01)
John Clancy zooms in on our organs, compiling more than 300 images of the human body snapped at high magnification. They look amazing--but not particularly human. At times, leafing through the book feels like paging through images of deep-sea exploration.... The deeper we go, the more abstract it gets.... At 1,250x magnification, nerve cells have the dots, swirls and seemingly random smatterings of a Jackson Pollock painting. And it's all right there, inside us. (Aaron Leitkon Washington Post 2011-10-30)
