BITS – Ernst Haeckel’s Art Forms of Nature

In ALL, BITS by Julia

Ernst Haeckel stunningly illustrates the intricacy of biodiversity in his book Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature) published in 1904. His careful arrangement of each organism is also notable, adding mesmerizing patterns to each page.

Here are some of our favourite selections from this book, which can be accessed online through the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
