The Egg, Hardback Book

The Egg Hardback

Hardback

Description

Is there anything as simple as an egg? Is there anything as complex? In this gorgeous picture book, Britta Teckentrup portrays eggs through the eyes of an artist.

From hummingbirds to the extinct elephant bird, illustrations of the avian world's smallest and largest eggs demonstrate the variety present in nature.

Pastel studies explore the rainbow of soft colors and intricate patterns that make eggs of common birds seem incredibly striking.

In Teckentrup's hands, a scattering of broken egg shells become abstract art; a nest of unhatched eggs suggest the possibility and promise of life.

Her studies of songbirds and nests are themselves beautifully composed works of color and line.

A lovely meditation on the diversity of eggs, this magnificent book offers hours of lingering pleasure, and becomes fertile ground for conversation and imagination.
