Cephalopod Art

One of my favorite blogs, BiblioOdyssey, covers books, illustrations, science, history, visual materia obscura and generally just eclectic bookart.  For all you cephalopodaphiles, you need to check out their post from last week covering the gorgeous illustrations from Carl Chun’s publication on the cephalopods from the Valdivia expedition

In 1898, the steamship Valdivia left Hamburg for a nine month scientific voyage to the Atlantic, Indian and Great Southern oceans [map]. Known as the German Deep-Sea Expedition, the mission was led by Leipzig University Professor of Zoology, Carl Chun and investigated chemical, zoological and physical characteristics encountered in the oceans during the voyage.
