Inner Beauty of Nature [Book Review]

The most recent book that I was asked to review is the “Inner Beauty of Nature: X-Ray Photography” who was written by Bert Myers, 2007. The beginning of the book discusses the history and techniques used regarding X-Ray photography and how the author started his interest in this kind of photography. The highlight of the book is the multiple X-Ray photos captured in black and white, then includes some of these images being processed with color.

By Bert Myers

Nature can be appreciated in various ways and I think what Myers did in this book is what any of us nature nuts would have done in his profession. Although he pulled it off in this interesting coffee-table picture book and was able to successfully share his nature finds with everyone (but with the X-Ray photography twist)! I congratulate him in a job well done and for dazzling me with his outstanding shells that he photographed. I think every Doctors office should have a copy of this book for their waiting patients.

The publicity individual who contacted me about reviewing this book had kindly agreed to send me a second copy to give away to one of my viewers. Like in my previous book review we will used a random number generator to decide who would get the book. So, comment below and if you’re the first person to comment your number 1 and if you’re the 10th person to comment your number is 10 . . . etc . . . ! I will use an online tool Monday evening (3/30/09) to help me decide who will win the book!! Good luck and if you don’t win . . . be sure to get the book at your local bookstore.

  1. That’s really a different spin on photography. Nature is really pretty, inside and out. The cover is gorgeous!

    What an intersting way to look at flowers. I would never have thought of looking at nature this way. It sort of reminds me of the way some people scan flowers only it goes deeper of course. I would love to read the book.

    The world is so beautiful; it’s nice to see it captured in such unusual ways! I really like the idea 0f putting it in doctors’ offices, too. 🙂

    Wow, what a neat form of photography. I bet the images of the shells are quite beautiful!

  7. The book sounds great. X-raying shells must be rather like bone density scans. Do you think?

    That’s very interesting stuff. The inner structures of things are often so complex
