They may look like monsters from a horror film, but these tiny creatures inhabit our homes, clothes and even our bodies. A new book, ‘Micro Monsters’, showcases some of the planet’s most horrible insects and microscopic beasts. British author and trained zoologist, Tom Jackson, spent three months compiling the images in the book. Scientists coated the tiny creatures in gold, froze them in liquid nitrogen and fired a beam of electrons at the subjects from a scanning electron microscope to reveal the incredible detail :

“I wanted to get together all the most gruesome and beastly pictures I could,” said 38 year-old Tom from Bristol. “This book shows children everything that’s around them at home, the garden and the playground.”

“The pictures I’m most pleased with are the close-up portraits of insects that show the intricate details of their eyes, mandibles and even the hairs on their heads,” said Tom

“I’ve tested the book out on my son Ned and it hasn’t given him any bad dreams, in fact he loves it. In particular Ned likes like the nasty worms.”

In scanning electron microscopy, a beam of electrons is fired at the subjects. Electrons have shorter wavelengths than lights waves so smaller objects can be captured.
