One Hundred Butterflies by Harold Feinstein
“The earth laughs with flowers, but it dances with butterflies.”
– Harold Feinstein (from the front flap)
I don’t usually post such large images of book covers, but I wanted to give you an idea of how absolutely dazzling the photos in this books are. Feinstein has captured the beauty and brilliance of these ornate insects and reproduced it in a oversized format, allowing us to appreciate the details. The photos of butterflies from around the world are mesmerizing, the vivid colors shown off to perfection by the black background. The intense blues of the African Blue Salamis and the luminous oranges of the Monarch took my breath away.
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your should to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
Irish Blessing, – pg. 96
Butterfly lovers would treasure this book, as would art lovers. After all, butterfly wings are as magnificent as any painting or stained-glass window. You can see more of Feinstein’s butterfly images at his website.
