This book was given to me as a Christmas gift. I’ve admired books by Porcupine Quill in the past but somehow I never came across this one. The pages are filled with the fantastic etchings of Rudolf Kurz, an artist living in Canada. They are presented as full page spreads or details carefully placed to create a visual journey that includes dinosaurs, strange plants, cocoons and of course snails. This is a beautiful little book. Find it if you can.
