Amazing Close-Ups of Seeds

"In a new book, Seeds: Time Capsules of Life, [author Wolfgang] Stuppy tells the story of seeds and seed evolution with the extraordinary visual aid of [artist Rob] Kesseler’s gorgeous images of specimens from the collection. To capture their exquisite structures, Kesseler takes seeds just millimeters in size and magnifies them tens and hundreds of times under a scanning electron microscope.”
