Today Karen and I participated in an event in our local museum of the history of science. We drew pictures of insects seen through a microscope, and then transferred our drawings into monoprint. That’s my* body louse, Pediculus humanus, reproduced above – I forgot to reverse the caption. The event was designed to celebrate the famous work Micrographia, by Robert Hooke.
* only borrowed. I wasn’t allowed to keep her.
