Envisioning Science: The Design and Craft of the Science Image
Named a winner in the AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers of 2002 competition presented by the American Institute of Graphic Designers (AIGA), Named Best of Show at Bookbuilders of Boston's 2003 New England Book Show—also honored for Best Cover and named Best of College Books. and Finalist for the 2002 Kraszna-Krausz Book Award in the Craft, Technology & Scientific Books category Science and engineering research must be communicated within the research community and to the general public, and a crucial element of that communication is visual. In Envisioning Science, science photographer Felice Frankel provides a guide to creating dynamic and compelling photographs for journal submissions and scientific presentations to funding agencies, investors, and the general public. The book is organized from the large to small—from photographing laboratory equipment to capturing new material and biological structures at the microscopic level. Full-color illustrations including many side-by-side comparisons provide an extensive gallery of fine science photography.
The book begins with a brief historical overview in a foreword by science educator Phylis Morrison. Frankel discusses technical issues and, just as important, her personal approach to creating images that are both scientifically informational and accessible. This is a handbook that should become a standard tool in all research laboratories.
