Comment

We have collected so much information over the years. For people new coming to the site, it might seem difficult to just dive in... somewhere. So, this month we bring together some great articles from the past and add to the experience, new articles written this month.

We enter the winter now in the UK, and in this part of the hemisphere. The things in our world outside our homes  which are active and excited by the warmth and energy of the sun... well, the have to cope and implement strategies to get by through the coming cold.

This is a time when people here, also facing the shorter days and long nights, have to get by too. Nothing like a good book, read by a warm fire at the end of a difficult day, to fascinate you and keep you going until Spring.

Here are a few which might make you think about the world you live in and the tiny world which shapes it which we often do not see or appreciate.

It's not the big stuff in life which changes and shapes it, but the smallest things. So, maybe it's time get started on a new hobby this winter?

Thinking of buying a microscope?



Best to read this small book first.
 

Micscape Magazine and founder of this site wrote a book to help young first time users.

Pippa's Progress. The book above might help and the free suite of videos of Pippa showing how to use a microscope and study things available here at Mic-UK.


Microscopy As A Hobby In The 21st Century. A lot of books out there on starting out with microscopy as a hobby are now quite old, and in this brave new era, fail to address advantages offered by our new technologies. Our book, aimed at the person first starting out with a microscope (of any age) introduces modern techniques and methods whilst retaining the best from the past. Repeatedly a Number 1 best seller on Amazon, per cheaper through Brunel Microscope books in the UK.

 


Little Imp CDs free online courtesy of Steve Gill - 
The contents of 66 CDs formerly sold by Savona Books and meticulously compiled by Steve Gill are now free online and hosted here on Microscopy-UK. A wide selection of public domain books and microscope makers' catalogues are offered, many of which are hard to source elsewhere. Many thanks for Steve's generosity.
