" --Portland Press Herald
"I'm not someone who needs a nudge to want to learn more about the structure of a leaf and what the phases of a moon look like, but if you're someone who's ever walked outside and looked up (or down) and wondered how the natural world around you works, this book is a fun and
beautiful guide to learning more. There are over 700 illustrations in Nature Anatomy
and each one comes with interesting facts, a story or a lesson that helps you understand more about the natural world." --Design Sponge"A loving celebration of sunsets and salamanders, ferns and feathers, mountains and mushrooms, and the whole enchanting aliveness in between." ---Maria Popova, Brain Pickings"With its wide range of topics, from landforms to leaf identification, bird beaks, and water bugs, Nature Anatomy is designed as the ultimate book for browsers with an insatiable curiosity about the great outdoors. Rothman has clearly found a structure and design in which she excels; this title is an informative charmer from start to finish. More, please." --Booklist"Cloud formations and sunsets get our attention, as do volcanoes -- the showy, dramatic phenomena of our planet. In Nature Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of the Natural World, published at the end of January, Julia Rothman also pays attention to the ecosystem of a rotting log, or the vast lattice of white threads, known as mycellium, that branch out from mushrooms underground, rendered in delicate, hand-drawn illustration." --PBS NewsHour
