Welcome to the museum! There are more than 160 animal specimens to be
discovered in Animalium, the first in a series of books meant to replicate the experience of visiting a museum, all from the comfort of your favourite armchair... Wander the galleries - open 365 days a year - and discover a collection of curated exhibits on every page, accompanied by informative text. Its visual tour is divided into six "galleries," one for each of the main classes of animals. This is a book to sit with for an hour, the heavy, oversized pages spread across your lap. The detailed illustrations will draw you in and kindle your curiosity. Every beautiful colour plate is accompanied by a key with distinctive, notable facts about each specimen. Each chapter features a different branch of the tree of life, from the simple sponge to the enormous elephant.
This gorgeous encyclopedia makes a perfect gift for the budding naturalist.
Large, stunningly beautiful and filled with pictures of surpassing elegance and detail.
