Will they survive? Something did survive anyway


If the purpose of publishing this book is to save hundreds of endangered species, as the National Geographic project was meant to, it might unfortunately prove a Lost Ark -- all the more so as the foreword has been written by Harrison Ford. But, at least, the absolute beauty of these snapshots by Joel Sartore shows that something did succeed in surviving Man's stupidity: the Renaissance gorgeous art of portraying animals.

The 400-page book is also available in Italian, in both a larger and a smaller size.
