Oldest Living Things In the World

Earlier last week I got my hands on Rachel Sussman‘s Oldest Living Things in The World Book. It is absolutely stunning.

Since 2004 Rachel has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling all over the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. The work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science. (In November of 2010 Rachel told her story at CreativeMornings.)

Her book contains 125 photographs, 30 essays on her 30 subjects, original inforgraphics, and contributions by New York Times science columnist Carl Zimmer and world-renowned curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Available on Amazon.
