Ernst Haeckel “Artforms of Nature”


Graphic designer? Illustrator? Did you hear about Ernst Haeckel’s “Artforms of Nature”?

Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel (1834 – 1919) also written von Haeckel, was an eminent German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology.

The published artwork of Haeckel includes over 100 detailed, multi-colour illustrations of animals and sea creatures (see: Kunstformen der Natur, “Artforms of Nature”).
