Originally published in sets of 10 between 1899 and 1904, Kunstformen der Natur, known in English as Art Forms in Nature by Ernst Haeckel, consists of 100 masterfully executed prints of microorganisms, animals, insects and more. This body of work has since become widely acclaimed for its beauty and biological accuracy. It was highly influential throughout 20th-century art, design and architecture and has inspired many artists, particularly throughout the Art Nouveau period, including Karl Blossfeldt and Émile Gallé. The plates within this publication reflect Haeckel's interest in symmetry, levels of organisation and the evolution of biological complexity. The subjects featured were carefully selected by Haeckel to highlight and illustrate this. From the complex geometric patterns and forms of Amphoridea to the ornamental symmetry of jellyfish and microorganisms, the composition of each plate is carefully considered and arranged for maximum visual impact. Featured prominently throughout the set of 100 plates are sea anemones, radiolarians, Aspidonia and a stunning collection Siphonophorae.

This book researches the process of metamorphosis in plants, animals and the human form. Nature's living forms are in continual transformation and growth. Dynamic forces sculpt the development of plants, animals and humans. These "open secrets" invite wonder and inquiry into the mystery of metamorphosis and form in nature. So, drawing on metamorphic principles, the book's profound yet practical research methods will help investigate the processes of how living forms develop. The methods for researching plant, animal and human metamorphosis are richly illustrated. Each chapter ends with drawing, painting and sculpture exercises to enable research and learning. These exercises also offer artistic and scientific methods for enlivening the ability to think and dynamically and visually.

The world's enthusiasm for Art Nouveau reached its apex at The World Fair in Paris in 1900. There René Binet created the main entrance, "la Porte Monumentale." To coincide with the exposition, Binet published in Esquisses decoratives (1896) the plate designs for the gate, along with other sketches of furniture, jewelry, wallpaper, lighting, stained glass windows, signs, wrought iron, and architectural details. The entire collection of Binet's sketches for Esquisses decoratives are beautifully presented here in color and black and white. Like his renowned gate, they feature the organic structures and intricate embellishments that mirror the great variety of patterns and ornamentation found in the microcosm of nature and epitomize the Art Nouveau aesthetic. Binet credited scientist and artist Ernst Haeckel's work on radiolarians as his inspiration. Two prominent experts on art and architectural history lend their perspectives to this important work in the realm of the decorative arts.
