Nature - Stilled Summary

Nature - Stilled by Jane Ussher

Award-winning photographer Jane Ussher spent several weeks in Te Papa's natural history collection storage areas shooting this outstanding book, and the result is a true treasure. Stunningly photographed and beautifully designed, its 157 images capture the glory of the insect, fish, mollusc and botanical specimens that represent the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa's vast and scientifically important collections. Te Papa's expert curators and collections managers have written the short texts about each natural history object, giving concise and unique insights into the fascinating characteristics of each of them. From photographs of huia and kakapo to vivid x-rays of fish, gloriously coloured moths and butterflies, unique mosses, and lichens collected in Antarctica, this outstanding book pays tribute to the glories of our natural world.
