About this book

Language: Japanese

Humans have been fascinated with colourful shellfish since ancient times, and they have been used in a variety of forms, such as coins and ornaments. This is a collection of over 300 macrophotographs of shells, enriched with latest academic insights.

Summary in Japanese:
これが本当に貝なのか――わずか数センチの殻に神秘的な色彩と造形を宿す貝に、私たち人類は古代から魅了され、貨幣や装飾品 など様々な形で用いてきた。そんな宝石とも工芸品とも見紛う極小の貝の美を、30年以上にわたり自然界の生き物を撮り続けてきた世界的写真家が再発見、 300点を超えるカラー写真に焼きつけた。高度なマクロ技術を駆使した美麗写真と最新の学術的解説が織りなす、今までにないスーパー・ビジュアル図鑑。
