Martin Oeggerli, only one word can describe the work you have published in this book... Magnificent! You made my day! I ordered the book through you, because I asked a special dedication and signature of you. Nature photography is well known, but Microscopy photography is really the next dimension in photography. No one did it before, Martin Oeggerlie made it possible. Well done and I will wait for your next book! Greetings, Cedric Winters, Belgium.

I've been a big fan of Martin's work for several years. I very much wanted to acquire one of his prints, but they are quite pricey. This book makes some of his best images available in a beautifully produced book that is well worth the price.
