About this book

Translated from the French by Simon Jones.

"Butterflies of the World" takes us through from the caterpillar to the adult butterfly capturing the sheer originality of the way these 200,000 different species of insect have developed. We are introduced to a breathtaking world of keen senses, in which an insect's thorax can hear, its feet can taste, and its wings can attract a mate. Gilles Martin has brought us images from his travels in the wild alongside photographed collections, and also invites us to enter the world of caterpillars and their metamorphoses. This book presents a surprising and poetic interpretation of a beautiful and astounding world.
