Body image these days is all about celebrating what's inside as much as what's on the outside. A new book from Batsford Publishing, Science is Beautiful by Colin Salter, takes us even deeper, placing the human body, as well as the diseases and medicines that affect it, under the microscope. The truly magnificent images are a reminder of the storied intersection between science and art, and of nature's endless ability to create sublime beauty in the most obscure



Melatonin Crystals:
Melatonin is a hormone made in the brain that helps you fall asleep. It’s often taken in pill form as well to give the body an extra push toward rest.




Tumor Blood Vessels:
Tumors, uncontrolled tissue growths, come complete with their own sets of blood vessels. These blood vessels found in intestinal tumors are formed irregularly, rather than the uniform fashion of normal intestinal blood vessels




Serotonin Crystals:
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter found mainly in the digestive system. It does a lot for the body: It regulates mood, sleep, and appetite, helps with clotting, and aids the learning process.

Its amazing how colorful we are. I almost get the feeling of Oceanic photography with some of these.
I think this is a brilliant a beautiful idea for a book.
