Book Review ~ One Hundred Butterflies

One Hundred Butterflies
by Harold Feinstein
Published by Hachette Book Group

I think that butterflies are amazing creatures. When picking out plants for our landscaping, I tried to find plants that attracted butterflies. So I was thrilled to review One Hundred Butterflies by Harold Feinstein. The book has photographs of 100 butterflies from around the world.

One Hundred Butterflies is a beautiful large coffee table book measuring 11.5"x13.5". The large size of the book allows you to see the intricate details of each butterfly. Each butterfly is showcased on it's own page with a black background. I was stunned by the absolutely gorgeous photographs. I never knew that butterflies came is so many beautiful colors and designs.

From the publisher:
In One Hundred Butterflies, photographer Harold Feinstein showcases butterfly varieties from around the world, turning exquisite details into mesmerizing works of art. Feinstein's breathtaking photographs capture the color, vibrancy,and infinite variety of patterns that occur on the wings of these ornate insects. One hundred impeccably reproduced, oversized photographs allow viewers to appreciate the Blue Morpho of Central America, the African Birdwing, and the Asian Swallowtail at a scale and depth impossible to experience in nature. An elegantly printed deluxe gift book, it is a treasure for butterfly enthusiasts and art lovers alike.

My son and I enjoyed paging through the book. This book would make a great gift for the photography buff or the "hard to buy for" person on your list. The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
