Description:

*First Printing (full # line starting with 1). Hardcover in like new condition in a dust jacket in near fine condition. Please not this dust jacket is really a sleeve that slides over the rear boards and covers about 3/4 of the cover. It has the title, critic's comments, a short explanation of the contents of the book, author bio, bar code and price. The dj sleeve would be fine if not for a tiny bit of light wrinkling at the top where the price is ($ 24.95). Foreword by Mary Roach. A great looking book with a beautifully designed front cover with 2 cellular open windows into details of 2 tattoo reproductions in color. Basically a fantastic collection of tattoos on the bodies of scientists. Each one expertly written up explaining there design and meaning. from the back dj sleeve --" Zimmer brilliantly animates the intoxicating passions of science lovers in perfectly precise, poetic short stories." --- Jad Abumrad, host of "Radiolab" "Every page of this book is a delight. Be dazzled by the images, wowed by the formulas, and inspired by the stories behind them all." -- Sean Carroll, author of 'From Eternity to Here" 271 pages and 14 pages of foreword and introduction.The color reproductions of the tattoos are magnificent. A very collectible book. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Body art meets popular science in this elegant, mind-blowing collection, written by renowned science writer Carl Zimmer. This fascinating book showcases hundreds of eye-catching tattoos that pay tribute to various scientific disciplines, from evolutionary biology and neuroscience to mathematics and astrophysics, and reveals the stories of the individuals who chose to inscribe their obsessions in their skin. Best of all, each tattoo provides a leaping-off point for bestselling essayist and lecturer Zimmer to reflect on the science in question, whether it's the importance of an image of Darwin's finches or the significance of the uranium atom inked into the chest of a young radiologist.

About the Author: Carl Zimmer is a journalist and lecturer on science writing at Yale University. His numerous critically praised books include Parasite Rex, which The L.A. Times called capable of changing how we see the world”; Soul Made Flesh (one of the top 100 books of 2004, according to The New York Times Book Review), and Microcosm, which The Boston Globe called, superb quietly revolutionary.” He writes for countless publications, including The New York Times and Scientific American, and regularly appears on radio (including on Fresh Air and This American Life) and on TV.
