The Art of Science Field Notes

In the days before computers and digital voice recorders and 1080i handheld video cameras and iPhones, scientists in the field actually had to write stuff down. Many of them were true artists.

This is a collection of stunningly beautiful field notes from Meriwether Lewis to our modern age. Time to sharpen those colored pencils!

(via Wired.com)

Meriwether had a very nice pencil stroke, for sure.


So much envy. I basically want to be able to do that. Not the sciencey parts, but a beautiful illustration that handwritten text flows around? Yeah.
