Item description for Wild Life (Cube Books) by Valeria Manferto, Cristina Maria Banfi, Giorgio G. Bardelli, Angela Serena Ildos & Colin Monteath...
White Star's bestselling CubeBook series has earned a reputation for superb quality images in an appealing, affordable format. This new addition to the series showcases the incomparable nature photography of Valeria Manferto. Featuring exotic species and familiar favorites, these images capture fleeting moments in the lives of a vast international menagerie of wild animals. Readers experience untamed creatures caring for their young, hunting for food, basking in the sun, grooming, and other everyday activities which, when viewed through the lens of Ms. Manferto, become very special indeed. We are whisked on a tour of the world's wildlife, from the big cats and noble elephants of the African savannahs to crocodiles and monkeys of tropical jungles to more familiar creatures such as bears and foxes that live in the northern forests. Presented in the trademark chunky, tactile format of the CubeBooks, these photos bring to life the physical beauty of these animals, and convey the unique qualities that makes each of them an integral part of our ecosystem.
