Help, scientists! I'm looking for a cover image for my forthcoming book of poetry. I would like to use a visually striking image (photo, diagram, etc.) from a scientific publication.
The poems in the book are often cold, distant, and undergo a lot of repetition and transformation, though there are other tones and modes as well. I'm looking for an image that will convey those things. I'll put a link to two sample poems, and text for another, in my profile; they're not 100% representative, but will be included in the book and should give an idea.
I wanted to use some stills taken from this youtube video
. The resolution would be too low to use, but otherwise the video is good because it's visually striking, cold, kind of cruel (too cruel to be funny, probably), and shows repetition/variation between the film and x-ray image.
So, scientists who have seen any amazing scientific illustration or diagram recently, please point me to it! I'm looking for things with masks, action, animals, repetitions (such as still frames from a video), anatomical diagrams, interesting colors, or anything visually striking. Newer is better than vintage -- no Victorian bottled anything, please. Biology/zoology are great. Vocal or sonic things are probably great. Nano-things are great too.
Thanks for any and all help!!
