The history of science through the portraits of its protagonists.
Inspired by the beautiful art and coffee table books, we have planned a new project.
Why not to merge beauty and science again?
More than 400 pages! full of portraits of scientists from the 16th to 19th century.
Men and women who marked the history of natural sciences and mathematics such as: Copernicus, Leonhard Euler, Galileo Galilei, Pascal, Kepler, Émilie du Châtelet, Edmond Halley, Leibniz, Isaac Newton, Ada Lovelace, Bernoulli, Napier, Fermat, Boyle, Caroline Herschel, William Harvey, Celsius, James Cook, Mary Somerville, Ampere, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Lagrange, Pasteur, Laplace, Avogadro, Boltzmann, Antoine Lavoisier, Legendre, Maria Mitchell, Carl Linnaeus, Charles Darwin, Gregor Mendel, Dmitri Mendeleev, Volta, John Dalton, Torricelli, Riemann, Fourier, Ernst Haeckel, Alexander von Humboldt, Laura Bassi… and very many more.
Figures from the world of mathematics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, biology and botany, ordered chronologically.
Oil on canvas, tempera, studio photographs, engraved portraits… a complete intersection between art and science in a 20 x 15 cm book.
Why pre-order it? With your pre-orders we will know if the project is viable, how many books to print (usually we print as many books as you pre-ordered or similar), and will help us finish the design and be able to cost the printing.
Printing is always the most expensive part of our projects because we try to choose premium materials. So pre-ordering is of great help and without it, the project would never be possible.
We need 200 pre-ordered books to reach the funding goal. That goal also will help us finish the documentation process, finding all the desired portraits of a good quality. The book would be issued this December (2021).
