About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Owls as nocturnal creatures fascinate almost everybody with their eerie cries. Once the epitome of wisdom and messenger of the gods the well-known illustrator Friedhelm Weick could not escape these spirits of the night. After numerous technical books on birds of prey and owls Weick crowned his life’s work with this large format picture book about the most beautiful and rarest owls in the world. Through all the deserts and jungles of the earth owls are common, but many species are threatened with extinction. Weick honours them by meticulously illustrating more than 100 species in unique works of art and adds detailed information, creating a book both for art lovers as well as for scientist.

Summary in German:
Eulen faszinieren als nachtaktive Wesen mit ihren schaurigen Schreien fast jeden. Einst Inbegriff der Weisheit und Bote der Götter konnte sich auch der bekannte Illustrator Friedhelm Weick diesen Geistern der Nacht nicht entziehen. Nach zahlreichen Fachbüchern über Greifvögel und Eulen krönt Weick sein Lebenswerk mit diesem großformatigen Bilderbuch über die schönsten und seltensten Eulen der Welt. Durch alle Wüsten und Dschungel der Erde sind Eulen verbreitet, doch viele Arten sind vom Aussterben bedroht. Weick setzt diesen Nachtgreifen ein Denkmal und illustriert akribisch und detailversessen mehr als 100 Arten in einzigartigen Kunstwerken. Selbstverständlich gibt er zu jeder Art zahlreiche Hinweise und Daten, so dass das Buch sowohl für den Kunstinteressierten als auch für den Wissenschaftler ein Quell der Freude und Information ist.
