Votre note
Insects Revealed is a richly illustrated expression of the author's love for his subject. Jacques de Tonnancour's gorgeous colour 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 in 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 fascinating 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 about 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.
