The Book of Barely Imagined Beings: A 21st-Century Bestiary

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

An entrancing guide to the world's most far-fetched creatures - a unique blend of cutting-edge science and philosophical meditation on what we humans can learn from the extraordinary animals around us.

From Axolotl to Zebrafish, discover a host of barely imagined beings: real creatures that are often more astonishing than anything dreamt in the pages of a medieval bestiary. Ranging from the depths of the ocean to the most arid corners of the earth, Caspar Henderson captures the beauty and bizarreness of the many living forms we thought we knew and some we could never have contemplated, inviting us to better imagine the precarious world we inhabit. A witty, vivid blend of pioneering natural history and spiritual primer, infectiously celebratory about life's sheer ingenuity and variety, The Book of Barely Imagined Beings is a mind-expanding, wonder-inducing read.
