Little Book of Butterflies
|Author:||National Library of Australia|
Symbolising new life, the magical beauty of butterflies has featured in works of art and poetry for centuries. The latest addition to the National Library of Australia's popular Little Books series, Little Book of Butterflies is a delightful blending of images of Australian butterflies, from the Library's collections, with Australian poetry. In the hands of artists such as Ellis Rowan, Harriet and Helena Scott, John Lewin and Charles McCubbin, the transience and beauty of these delicate creatures enliven the words of inspiration, hope and reflection by well-known poets including Judith Wright, Andrew Lansdown, Dorothy Shaw, Diane Fahey and Mudrooroo. A gorgeous showcase of butterfly illustrations and poetry, Little Book of Butterflies will appeal to all those searching for a perfect gift or a beautiful publication to savour for themselves.
