About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

The dream of discovering African nature comes true in Namibia. Its exceptional wealth of animals has a name, Etosha.

Francisco Hernández, illustrator of various publications and biologist, presents his unique fieldwork: a book full of drawings and paintings in which the mastery of his stroke, his exquisite treatment of light and the honesty with which he reveals the creative process, make this a useful publication for the naturalist and artist we all have in us.

This is one of the few fieldnote publications on Sub-Saharan Africa. And the subtitle, Drawing African Nature, is the name of a collection that will cover much of the continent. This work is full of beauty and sincerity, and its drawings will take us to one of Africa’s largest national parks, where we can still enjoy the magnificent spectacle of wildlife.

Summary in Spanish:
El sueño de conocer la naturaleza africana se hace realidad en Namibia. Su excepcional riqueza animal tiene nombre propio, Etosha.

Francisco Hernández, ilustrador de numerosas publicaciones y biólogo, nos presenta un trabajo de campo único, un libro repleto de dibujos y pinturas en los que la maestría del trazo, el exquisito trato de la luz y la honestidad con la que nos muestra el proceso creativo, hagan de éste un libro útil para el naturalista y para el artista que todos llevamos dentro.

Es uno de los pocos cuadernos de campo publicados sobre el África subsahariana. Además, el subtítulo Dibujando la naturaleza africana da nombre a la colección que recorrerá buena parte del continente. Un trabajo lleno de belleza y sinceridad que a través del dibujo nos permite viajar a uno de los mayores parques nacionales de África, donde todavía podemos disfrutar del gran espectáculo de la vida salvaje.
