Anairam said...

I enjoyed your take on it - I also vaguely thought in that direction at first, but then realized there was no easy way for me to translate it into a visual image! And what a treasure of a book - I agree with asphaltandair about scientific illustrations - they are great ....

Aris said...

I love your take. Beautiful illustations and such a nice way to think of family. it is all family we are all family right down to plant and fungus and most certainly the frogs. I am a big lover of frogs. Love it!

very nice family constallations, family can be so many things. it´s nice to see your interpretations of the word:)

trinsch said...

love your interpretation - and i love these kind of biologic illustrations.

my mom is a school teacher and a few years ago her school threw out all their old boards of illustrations. she told me and we hurried to the container and got a lot of beautiful board with flowers, birds, insects and animals. such luck that she mentioned it to me :) these books look like little treasures!

J'adore les canards. Ils me font marrer.
Ils ont l'air tout doux en plus.

I also love old botanical and zoological drawings. I studied biology a long time ago - I have a master's degree on earthworms :) - and I'm still very much interested in the by the natural history part of it.
Thank you everyone for stopping!
