Ernst Haeckel's 1904 bat drawings

I love Haeckel’s illustrations. Every plate from Kunstformen Der Natur (Art Forms in Nature) can be found on Wikimedia Commons (a PDF of the book is also available).


Betabrand has a shirt devoted to Haeckel.

It is pretty awesome…I wore mine to a Bill Nye the Science Guy book signing last week (sadly, I have to do with a selfie until the professional photographer sends the good one to me!)




Thank you! I’m having a ridiculously delightful time looking at them now!


Wonderful thing!
