“Of Microscopes and Monsters” is a blog linked to my personal webpages, www.martynkelly.co.uk. I originally started a blog on this site but when I upgraded the pages, it became easier to manage the blog from a separate site. The web pages bring together my interests in the microscopic world and art, using skills I gained during a fine art degree at the University of Sunderland to visualise the hidden worlds of Britain’s freshwaters.
“Of Microscopes and Monsters” is also the title of an illustrated book on the microscopic life of lakes and rivers, how man’s activities can affect this and why we need to be concerned. This book is available as a free download from my website.
