Science author Brandon Broll, living in London, has taken a lot of images on insects, household items, human body parts and so on. These photos are captured using a variety of traditional light-based microscopes, powerful scanning electron microscopes and transmission electro microscopes. All of them will be introduced in the book titled “Microcosmos”. Published by Firefly Books later this month, “Microcosmos” takes readers to a wonderful world of extreme close-up pictures. They are enlarged from 22 times to 22 million times. The book consists of six sections including Zoology, The Human Body, Botanics, Minerals, Technology and Micro-organisms.
