"A treat for the eyes and the mind, this well-chosen assortment illuminates the insight into the importance of pictorial process in discoveries by thinkers like Albert Einstein and Galileo."-- "The Globe and Mail"
"Scientists create illustrations not just to explain their ideas to others, but to make sense of their own data... Reading Anna Escardó's Science Illustration. A History of Visual Knowledge from the 15th Century to Today is like looking over the shoulder of those scientists. The illustrations show you what part of the world they were looking at -- and what they saw in it that fascinated them."-- "The New York Times"
