From sea squirts to slugs to swallowtails--the third, fabulous, and gorgeously illustrated book in Richard Mabey's series, a companion volume to Flora Britannicaand Birds Britannica A comprehensive look at invertebrates that proves it's the little things that count, this essential and accessible work on bugs is not a biological guide but a richly illustrated cultural one, seen through the eyes.

The book works so triumphantly because author Peter Marren has examined bugs in the dusty corners of our houses and gardens as well as traversing mountains, lakes and fields. In addition to the fascinating habits of the bug world, he also includes the eccentric behaviour of the bug obsessives themselves/5.

About this book Bugs Britannica will be a nationwide chronicle of bug life in the 21st century. It will look at why bugs matter to us and why we care about them.

It will record our continuing love-hate relationship with small life and how it influences our life and times, in a word, our culture.

As with Flora and Birds, Bugs is not a biological guide but a richly-illustrated cultural one, seen through the eyes of writers, musicians, artists and naturalists - from the great Tudor naturalist, Thomas Muffet (father of Little Miss Muffet) to Irvine Welsh's talking tapeworm in Filth - as well as contributions by ordinary men and women who are fascinated by creepy-crawlies of all kinds/5(30).

From Sea Squirts to Slugs to Swallowtails, the third, fabulous and gorgeously illustrated book in Richard Mabey’s acclaimed series, a companion volume to the bestselling classics Flora Britannica and Birds Britannica.
