100 Birds To See In Your Lifetime by David Chandler and Dominic Couzens (Hardback) ISBN: 9781787392441 - APRIL 2019

100 Birds To See In Your Lifetime by David Chandler and Dominic Couzens (Hardback) ISBN: 9781787392441 - APRIL 2019

Part aspirational encyclopedia, part identification guide, 100 Birds to See in Your Lifetime provides detailed summary information and range maps, along with beautifully written profiles featuring unusual facts, anecdotes and its significance. Whilst many of the species would be on any bird enthusiast's wish list, the list has been fiercely debated by two renowned birding authors, using various criteria to arrive at a top 100. Some species are endangered and therefore a must to see and conserve; others are quite common but have a particular plumage or behaviour that makes them exceptional; and others have a legendary status amongst birdwatchers and the layman, such as the dancing Red-crowned Cranes and the spectacular Gyr Falcon.

Camouflaged Wildlife by Joe MacDonald (Hardback) ISBN: 9781921517860 WAS 16.99

Camouflaged Wildlife by Joe MacDonald (Hardback) ISBN: 9781921517860 WAS £16.99

This beautifully illustrated book on camouflaged animals includes some of nature's greatest designs and is one of the most remarkable compilations of pictures on the subject ever published. These images have to be seen to be believed in terms of the subjects' remarkable imitations of their natural backgrounds which often aid them in their roles as hunting predator or prey attempting to avoid capture. Types of animal covered include invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and all kinds of marine wildlife. The text, written by the expert authors and photographers, explains what is shown in each picture, giving insight from the actual observations. Subjects include colour-changing chameleons and fish, birds which look like tree branches, eggs which blend with their sand or gravel background, butterflies which perfectly imitate leaves, crab spiders which mimic the bright petals of their chosen bloom and Snow Leopards which merge seamlessly with the slopes on which they stalk their prey. Decades of work by the award-winning photographers are distilled down into this remarkable and eye-caching book.

Charles Darwin's - On The Origin Of Species (Hardback) ISBN: 9780141388502

A very important project, most beautifully realised. Sabina Radeva's thoughtful text and gorgeous pictures together tell the story of On The Origin of Species, and of Evolution itself, with clarity, humour and great charm. - Emma Darwin

The first ever picture-book retelling of Charles Darwin's On The Origin of Species.

On The Origin of Species has been the definitive explanation of the theory of evolution since it was first published in 1859. Now molecular biologist and illustrator Sabina Radeva unites her two passions to create a 64-page retelling of this seminal text.

This accessible work brings evolution to the younger generation through stylish illustrations and a simple, easy-to-understand text.

Pulling together Darwin's observations from his travels around the world and his groundbreaking - and controversial - explanation of how species form, develop and change over hundreds of thousands of years, On The Origin of Species is as relevant and important now as it ever was.
