    One thought on “Eye to Eye: Intimate Encounters with the Animal World”

    1. My main problem with this book is the way that it has been bound, while some photographs are stunning the impact is lost when you have the book binding right down the centre of the image. Some of the images are also lacking in quality, i can't help but say i wouldn't recommend this to anyone i got it for £3 in the works and now glad i did not pay the actual full price. Its not a book that is for the serious photography lover but for kids i suppose its okay!

    2. I was immediately amazed by the cover (can't help it, I love felines). The book is filled with beautiful full page animal photographs. It reminded me of the countless times I went to the San Diego Zoo when I was a kid. The eye theme is particularly wonderful and its interesting to compare the differences between species. I was only disappointed that there was only one blurry picture of tigers.

    3. Page after page of close-up photographs with no text other than to identify the image. This book is not just about large cats but all sorts of exotic animals. Great for inspiring non-readers and readers alike!

    4. Loved this book! While it is mostly a picture book, at the end he goes into what it took to get each image. Makes me want to get out and do my own wildlife expedition. Thanks!

    5. Absolutely beautiful, stunning images.A worthy addition to your bookshelf if you like wildlife photography

    6. This books makes you rethink the difference between humans and other animals. The highlight for me was the pictures of the bonobos. I can't get over their facial expressions.

    7. Frans lanting here delivers a great photography book for our eyes' delight. The photographer brings us up close with wild animals in their natural environment.
