Brandon Broll’s Microcosmos


    It’s a small world after all. Well at least when it is magnified 22 million times, like this microscopic photo of common household dust. Microcosmos: Discovering The World Through Microscopic Images From 20 X to Over 22 Million X Magnification is a whole new world to the invisible naked eye to be discovered.

    Discovering The World Through Microscopic ImagesMicrocosmos is a remarkable photo-journey into everyday life through spectacular microscopic images. This new edition lifts the book to breathtaking realms. The extraordinary images, produced with the latest microphotography technologies, are displayed on more reader-friendly larger page layouts. Most of the 205 full-color photographs were taken using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), which allows us to see our world as never before.

    Each page features a single image, a remarkable close-up that reveals form, shape and color in incredible detail. The book is divided into six chapters that cover:

    • Microorganisms
    • Botany
    • The human body
    • Zoology
    • Minerals
    • Technology
