Item description for Living Jewels 2: The Magical Design of Beetles by Poul Beckmann & Ruth Kaspin...

The beetles are back--and they're bigger and more beautiful than ever!

Photographer Poul Beckmann's first collection of larger-than-life beetles was hailed across the globe. The Houston Chronicle called it "one of the season's happiest marriages of science and art." The Wall Street Journal declared it an "original and beautiful book," while American Photo praised its "dazzling color and sumptuous production values."

Now Beckmann has compiled an entirely new collection of gorgeous beetles that are ready for their close-up. Magnified multiple times their normal size and photographed in rich color, their true magnificence is revealed: page after page of luminescent golds, electrifying greens, fiery reds, and unearthly blues. There are beetles with leopard spots and zebra stripes, beetles shaped like rhinos and dragons, beetles with long horns and shining armor. While Beckmann's images represent the finest examples of nature photography, the presentation of his subjects takes these pictures to another level. Graphic designers, painters, architects, fashionistas, and entomologists will be amazed and inspired by the natural beauty of these tiny jewels.

stunning ,up close photos!  May 10, 2007
I have a few books on beetles. Including the first Living Jewel.
I am speechless. The photos make it seam like you are a relative size
to the beetles. All the subtle nuances of texture and pattern captured in the photos is a
true gift from the gods. This is an amazingly beautiful book! Hats off to Poul Beckmann
and Prestel.
