Can you view a photo album with no humans in it and still like it? That is exactly what author Meg Lambourne makes you do, in the book Nature's Patterns: Lines and Spots and Spirals, Oh My! This book takes the natural world around us and tells you what patterns you can see in each one of them. For example, we all know a beehive has hexagons, similarly, there are lines, arcs, circles and many other shapes in literally every natural element: Trees, bugs, animals, birds and more. Meg Lambourne takes us on a pictorial journey. We see high quality pictures of many simple, regular things having patterns; they are magnified in such a way that we can see them clearly. Once you have read this book, you will never see those things the same way again, that is the kind of impact this book has on you.

Not just pictures, the simple explanations given are a superb read as well. In fact, they talk about so many other things not mentioned in these pictures and motivate you to go and find them on your own. This book focuses on patterns and colours, so a general understanding about their visual impact will help. But even for others, this is a good read, and it may even be an eye opener. The only downside I felt about this book is the explanations are too simple in some cases. While a Google search can give you many other details, I expected some more help for readers. Overall, a great book, something I would recommend to any "visual" person.
