Explore the fantastic and mysterious world of plants through awe-inspiring microscopic photography. Pollen, seeds, and fruits, when viewed up close, are extraordinary examples of nature's exquisite diversity and infinite beauty. Almost alien in their appearance, these breathtaking images will open your eyes to the largely unseen wonder of flowering plants.
This stunning calendar celebrates the miraculous inner world of plants and their life cycle. Based on the books Pollen: The Hidden Sexuality of Flowers (2014) by Rob Kesseler and Madeline Harle; Seeds: Time Capsules of Life (2014) by Kesseler and Wolfgang Stuppy; and Fruit: Edible, Inedible, Incredible (2013) by Stuppy and Kesseler, the Pollen Seeds Fruit wall calendar will take you on an eye-opening journey through the life cycle of flowering plants. These highly detailed images of pollen grains — the tiny yet perfect masterpieces — seeds that carry within them the next generation, and fruits that house those precious seeds illustrate the complexities of all the worlds within our world and connect us to nature on a profound level.
