Micscape Magazine is an e-zine on the Web, which was started 25 years ago in 1995. Dedicated to promoting home microscopy, and using a microscope for joy & self-learning, rather than for commercial or professional application, it publishes articles written by contributors from around the world on the 13th of each calendar month. This is only the second yearbook which draws upon a selection of articles from the 25 years and makes them available in a practical, physical book. The previous yearbook was published over four years ago. A collector's item, and a treasure to everyone engaged in a fascinating pastime, a pursuit which has gripped human-beings since the early Victorian era. It is also a book and work that honours that history and adds to the evolution of the hobby using contemporary knowledge, technologies, and know-how. Whether you are interested in microscopy history, technique, macroscopy, or the creatures and plants which populate the microscopic and macroscopic worlds, you will find something to interest you inside these pages. For the experienced hobbyist, the book will serve as a source of inspiration and encouragement, especially to own a copy of a rare work, one which is produced as a celebration and a tribute to non-professional microscopists around the world. The proceeds from the sale of the book are used to help continue to fund the online magazine and associated website at micscape.org along with the two founders' work to secure and continue to make available the article contributions from hundreds of generous unpaid international authors. Informative insights into the history of slide-makers, microscope manufacture, including extraordinary studies of unusual living forms, and instructional techniques for improving how to study them, along with a small gallery of images to excite and inspire all home microscopists around the world, The Micscape Yearbook number 2 serves as a beacon to a hobby that many people still do not realize even exists outside of the commercial and medical application. But it does. And if you are a home-microscopist, amateur microscopist, or the partner of someone who is, this book will become a loving treasure in the home library.
