There’s something nostalgic and storybook-like to the biological illustrations of Vivien Martineau. She created a project titled, Levels of Complexity’ in which she communicates science in a “more accessible illustrative style.”

I would love to see an entire textbook done in her illustrative style…oh wait there is! You can find 60 of Vivian’s illustrations in The Cell by Jack Challoner.
