Joining two mid-length films on significant historical developments in scientific thought, this program examines the lenses through which we view biology. First, we'll delve into the innovations of Anton van Leeuwenhoek that first opened the microscopic world to captivated eyes in the 1670s. Then, jumping three centuries forward, we'll come to Niles Eldridge, who in 1972, proposed, along with Stephen J. Gould, the punctuated equilibrium refinement of evolutionary theory, launching a debate that continues to this day. In between, shorter stops for Lynn Margulis and Ernst Haeckel meet cutting edge biological visualization bringing us right up to the present.Book design is the art of incorporating the content, style, format, design, and sequence of the various components of a book into a coherent whole. In the words of Jan Tschichold, "methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve, have been developed over centuries. To produce perfect books, these rules have to be brought back to life and applied."
Front matter, or preliminaries, is the first section of a book, and is usually the smallest section in terms of the number of pages. Each page is counted, but no folio or page number is expressed, or printed, on either display pages or blank pages.
