My copy is wrecked from being pawed by houseguests young and old. But that's okay, because it's fun to watch them turning the pages, deciding on a favorite creature. The hummingbird? The chimp? What's yours?

Publisher Comments:

Photographer Andrew Zuckerman's strikingly detailed images of animals from around the world are as delightful as they are inspiring. This collection of astonishing studio portraits of 175 wild creatures from baby leopards to parrots, bears, mandrills, and many more are stunningly foregrounded against white backgrounds, depicting their subjects with rare sensitivity, insight, humor, and wonder. Zuckerman — also an up-and-coming filmmaker whose first short film, High Falls, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007 — has created a volume perfect for animal lovers, photography fans, and anyone fascinated by the world around us. Creature is a beautiful and thought-provoking look at the fragile wonders of the natural world.
