Book Overview

From basic mathematical and physical formulas that govern much of our world to the components of matter; from the structure of the cosmos to that of the human body-the discoveries of scientists over the last millennium have been remarkable.

Sciencia gathers together Useful Mathematical and Physical Formulae, Q.E.D, Essential Elements, Evolution, The Human Body, and The Compact Cosmos, six elegant and insightful short volumes spanning the realms of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, evolution, and astronomy, offering invaluable information to today's readers. Lavishly illustrated with engravings, woodcuts, and original drawings and diagrams, Sciencia will inspire readers of all ages to take an interest in the interconnected knowledge of the modern sciences.

Beautifully produced in thirteen different colors of ink, Sciencia is an essential reference and an elegant gift.

Wooden Books was founded in 1999 by designer John Martineau near Hay-on-Wye. The aim was to produce a beautiful series of recycled books based on the classical philosophies, arts and sciences. Using the Beatrix Potter formula of text facing picture pages, and old-styles fonts, along with hand-drawn illustrations and 19th century engravings, the books are designed not to date. Small but stuffed with information. Eco friendly and educational. Big ideas in a tiny space. There are over 1,000,000 Wooden Books now in print worldwide and growing.

   A little bit of everything in one book!
I really like the way the book is organized, and I can read about a topic or two and sit for a longer read. It has great coverage with an interesting theme, it is well written and is bound well. The photo does not justice to it. But its contents are great still.

   I love this!
Since I was old enough to bike to my university bookstore in my hometown, I have LOVED Wooden Books. The same goes nearly 10 years later. This is a straight reprinting of 6 books that would be $10 each ) QED 2) essential mathematical and physical formula 3) Evolution 5) The human body 6) The compact cosmology How could you do better for $12? I also get a copy of Quadrivium. So, you should not be afraid.

   Good book on the general subjects of science.
Great overview book for the science enthusiast. I would go in some topics just in detail. Other than that, it is a nice book to leave on your living room table and as a talking piece.

   Great read!
My fourteen year old really wanted this for Christmas. He found it in a big chain book store, and I refused to pay the price for it. Amazon ordered it so, and we were very pleased with it. The content is captivating and organized in a way that is easily understood. Definitely a recommendation for anyone wanting to expand their limited science knowledge in the department of science!

   Fascinating, and accessible
This is great for anyone who wants to get a taste for some different mathematical concepts without going deep into any of them. Also very cool sketches, fun to read.
