Reviews

"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
