Our two latest books go together like Two Turtle Doves…
Les Animots: A Human Bestiary, poems by Gordon Meade, images by Douglas Robertson
The characters and labours of creatures from wasps to whales are conjured cleverly in this remarkable collaboration between poet Gordon Meade and artist Douglas Robertson. Les Animots: A Human Bestiary subverts our common perceptions of familiar and unfamiliar animals with wisdom, compassion and robust good humour.
978-0-9926485-9-6. HB. 203×127mm. 164pp. Poetry and images. £10.00.
The Ecology of Everyday Things, by Mark Everard
Central to this book is an appreciation of how nature is integral to the everyday objects in our lives. Dr Mark Everard, an ecosystems scientist and aquatic biologist, considers a diversity of ‘everyday things’, including fascinating facts about their ecological origins – from the tea we drink, to things we wear, read and enjoy, to the ecology of communities and space flight, and the important roles played by ‘unappealing creatures’ such as slugs and wasps.
978-0-9932119-6-6. 126pp. 15 illustrations. November 2015. HB. Non-fiction. £10.
The Ecology of Everyday Things costs £10.00 plus p&p. Postage is free if you order more than one Cultured Llama book.
