Guiraud, Florence

Wonders of Nature: Explorations in the World of Birds, Insects and Fish

(3) K-3 Translated by Paul Kelly. With finesse and pizzazz, Guiraud depicts a random but marvelous assortment of exotic and familiar birds, bugs, and sea creatures in this large-format "cabinet of curiosities." Whimsically written chapter introductions (translated from the French) urge appreciation and conservation and are followed by several spreads of meticulously detailed illustrations of various animal parts; notes on the pictured creatures conclude most chapters. Guiraud's spectacular art is not soon forgotten.
