A loving celebration of sunsets and salamanders, ferns and feathers, mountains and mushrooms, and the whole enchanting aliveness in between.
A beautiful and very practical coffee table book. If you’re like me, and absorb more useful information from pictures and diagrams, Nature Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of the Natural World is the right book for you. Beautifully illustrated, it is a fusion of science and an art of observing the world around us – starting from nature’s wonders to turtles, mushrooms and everything in between.
From the author:
I cherish being surrounded by greenery for just a small period of time each day. It keeps me sane to be able to smell some grass after being squashed like a sardine in a subway car. I really look around the park wanting to know more. What is that tree with the beautiful leaves called? When will those flowers I saw last year show up again? Are those really bats flitting above our heads? How funny to see so many dragonflies attached, making love! My curiosity continues to grow, and that’s how the idea for this book took shape.
Available from Amazon, bookstores and also Auckland Library (on request as it is quite popular!).
