Report on the Scientific Results of the Voyage of H.M.S. Challenger during the years 1873-1876, Zoology, Volume XVIII
by Ernst Haeckel, M.D., Ph. D., Professor of Zoology in the University of Jena.
Check out all the plate illustrations (and Haeckels other work), these paintings are all gorgeous and should be used in more art projects. There is also a beautiful documentary about the man and his passionate forging of art and science called Proteus.
