NIGHT VISIONS: The Secret Designs of Moths
by Joseph Scheer
2003, 120 pages, 150 color illus. Greatly magnified images in this astonishing collection are so vibrant they seem poised to fly off the page. You may think of moths as drab-colored poor relations of beautiful butterflies. Well- think again! Using a high-resolution scanner, recently developed digital printing technology, and an artist’s sensibility, the result is a jewel box of brilliantly colored, intricately formed creatures, each with its own landscape of tiny hairs, scales of kaleidoscopic colors invisible to the naked eye, iridescent eyes and highly detailed antennae. A gallery of moths organized by family, with scientific and common names, size, and color photo concludes this amazing book. After enjoying this book, you’ll never look at a moth the same way again. Hardcover; 13-1/2 x 11-1/2″.
