Description
'We need the Jacques de Tonnancours of the world to bring little-noticed but common beauty to our attention. And, perhaps, through beauty, to engage us more fully with the world around us.'?from the Foreword by Sue Hubbell Insects Revealed is a richly illustrated expression of the author's love for his subjects. Jacques de Tonnancour's gorgeous color photographs and accompanying text will appeal to anyone who already admires insects, and will convince the curious to learn more. Readers will share the author's fascination with and delight about a wide range of insects found throughout the world, especially in the tropics. Twenty years ago, De Tonnancour ended his career as a respected painter of natural history subjects to dedicate himself to photographing the creatures that have fascinated him since childhood. He has traveled the globe in search of rare insects. This book features his splendid portraits of individuals of many species and displays the knowledge he has gathered: the ecology, behavior, defensive strategies, anatomy, and evolution of insects. Throughout, de Tonnancour's clear, elegant, and sensitive language casts a spell as he conveys accurate scientific information.
