About the Book: The reptiles and amphibians surrounding us are more than 17,000 species of fascinating and beautiful wildlife that many of us usually ignore. In this colourfully illustrated book 20 artists have taken those cold-blooded animals as inspiration and transformed them into pieces of art that change the way we perceive our world. The unusual shapes, glittering colours, and perfectly adapted bodies of chameleons, turtles, snakes, frogs and even dinosaurs offer us new ways to see and be inspired, in media ranging from fiber to glass and from paper to gold.
