UPNE - What Are the Arts and Sciences?: Dan RockmoreWhen the two broad fields of art and science intertwine, discoveries become sublime and unexpected approaches to problems are born. This collection of eight notable titles from the past year includes rich photographs and diverting illustrations that explore science through visual art and the written word. And as art does, these books don't shy away from deep questions about nature and human activity. Vivid, stunning photographs by Clark capture some of the striking variation and specialization of Earth's life.

Evolution's progress can take millennia, but, here, glimpses are visible on the page. The cracks, bands, spirals and dots adorning living creatures, planets and even inanimate rock and earth can resemble one another for a simple reason: the physical and chemical forces that shape them are the same.
