About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Italian

An excellent personal photographic account of insects and other invertebrates observed by the author in various locations, especially Ecuador. Carotti describes the animals in a succinct, engaging way and lards his text with literary quotations suggestive of the bizarre and exotic forms and behaviours of his subjects. Altogether a compelling testimony to the fascination of small creatures.

The title is a reference to Sir Thomas Moffett's Insectorum sive minimorum animalium theatrum of 1634.
