My new book on Haeckel’s Embryos: Images, Evolution and Fraud tells the extraordinary story of an alleged forgery that became a textbook classic. Spanning from the 19th to the 21st century, from German-speaking Europe to the United States, it explores how scientific images succeed and fail, are taken for granted and cause trouble. Together the text and 250 colour pictures highlight copying as creative and controversial, and show how embryonic development was made a process we can see, compare and debate.
