Description of the book:

Total price including shipping (No tax)


"Island Insects: a photographic potpourri of Newfoundland bugs," is now available for purchase.

It is a
7" x 9" soft cover book that contains 100 pages and over 260 full-colour photographs of Newfoundland bugs and spiders. Curious adults and nature lovers of any age are sure to enjoy the photographs and accompanying captions.

Children will almost certainly turn to the pictures before the text. Every parent knows how kids love dinosaurs and this book shows ants and other insects so close-up that they almost look like living, breathing dinosaurs.

For adults, the text is sufficiently informative that even experienced Newfoundland outdoors people ought to find something new within these pages. And unless you've been carrying a magnifying glass around the woods with you, the photos in this book will show you a perspective on Newfoundland outdoors that you've never seen before.

On a personal note, I'm the author, photographer and publisher, living in Logy Bay. The book is a result of my love of photography combined with my fascination for the amazing world of tiny animals that we call insects, bugs and spiders. 

All photos, text, layout, design and editing are by the author.  It was printed by Impress Print Solutions, part of The British Confectionery Company, in Mount Pearl, NL.
