A book is pictured, with a green canvas cover and black taped binding. It is open, face down, in a three-quarters perspective and supported from below so that it is propped up like a tent. On each cover, two petri dishes are affixed, with line illustrations of aquatic animals on paper inside the dishes along with additional strips of paper describing them.In this featured exhibit in the Walter E. Havighurst Special Collections in King Library, explore the relationship between art and science. This collection of artist books examines different branches of science through the lens of art, tackling subjects ranging from the highly technical fields of mathematics and computer science to the natural sciences of biology and climate change.
