Just as did Flachandrsquo;s highly acclaimed previous books, Equus and Dogs, More than Human will amaze and inspire, in a constant affirmation of the animal, whether it be rare or common, powerful or defenseless, odd or majestic. The book showcases a menagerie of creaturesandmdash;pandas, tigers, bats, lions, orangutans, cobras, bullfrogs, chimpanzees, wolves, porcupines, elephants, owls, armadillos, among many othersandmdash;as they have never been seen before. Shedding light on Flachandrsquo;s images will be an accessible collection of texts, written and edited by author Lewis Blackwell.
