About this book

Watercolours by Marlene McLoughlin
In 1879, Henri Fabre published Souvenirs of Entomology, a collection of his musings on entomology and nature in France. It became an instant bestseller. Now combined with McLoughlin's illustrations it is an amusing and informative volume. Whether describing the intricate texture of a dragonfly's wings, the pale delicacy of a hummingbird's egg or the effect of the afternoon light on the French landscape, Fabre is memorable.
