Description
Not a biological bug guide but rather a richly illustrated cultural one, this is an encyclopedia of the insect as seen through the eyes of poets, musicians, artists, and naturalists—from the great Tudor naturalist Thomas Muffet, father of Little Miss Muffet, to Irvine Welsh's talking tapeworm in Filth—and by other observers fascinated with creepy crawlies. The entries range from simple life forms to spiders, butterflies, and bees, followed by mollusks and "almost-fish," covering the habits of the bug world and also the eccentric behavior of the bug-obsessed. Here you will find sea squirts, slugs, and swallowtails, nimble-dicks, clock ladies, and coffin-cutters, seen in hundreds of color closeups.
