Another amazing book by the wonderful people at Big Picture Press.

Seriously, I want to own EVERYTHING they publish! This particular book is simply magnificent, all ll2 pages of it, and every inch of every page. The staggeringly huge 370 x 272mm book is a piece of treasure, and an absolute steal at £20.00. It’s educational value alone is priceless, each chapter features a different branch of the tree of life, from the simple sponge to the enormous elephant. The production value of this beauty makes me want to pick it up and lick it. The cover is matt-laminated with spot UV, it’s delicious! My photography doesn’t do it justice – Just buy it! You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
