Altogether "Pheromone" is a great read, a wonderful conversational peice for around the home, and just simply wonderful to look at.
I find I come back to the book almost every day.
The amazing quality pictures are engaging and colorful. The artist's dialog about both his history and the insects he uses is very informative about his art.
Well worth the money. A must have for artist, fine art lovers, and insect enthusiasts.
But that is all on the scientific level - a level that makes this book far more than a monograph on the art of Christopher Marley. The range of colors and shapes and bizarre aspects of insects recovered form around the globe is staggering and there are no two 'images' that appear the same. Other great artists, such as Jacquelyn McBain, have devoted much of their artistic career to exploring the beauty of insects: in McBain's case she also celebrates the flora on which these insects dwell and survive in paintings rich in observed accuracy and fascinatingly coupled with metaphorical titles and ideas.Read more ›
I bought this book for a friend that had just bought one of Marley's framed moths and he loved it.
I would highly recommend this book!
