Giant Golden Book of Biology - Illustrations by Charles Harper, originally uploaded by Grain Edit.com.
This beautiful little book from 1961 was designed to introduce children to biology. I just love the cute and stylish illustrations, which touch on the major concepts of a first year biology class.
In this image you can see a cnidarian, a pterophyte, a dinoflagellate and a member of hemiptera... to name a few!
