Book Review: One Hundred Butterflies

Through Product Review Place, I had the opportunity to review One Hundred Butterflies by Harold Feinstein.  This large (11.5"x13.5") coffee table book includes just that--one hundred butterflies.  Author Feinstein has photographed a wide range of butterfly species from all over the world and compiled them in this beautiful book.  The photographs are in large, breathtaking detail and many of the two-page spreads show both sides of the butterfly.  Through out the book are quotes from other writers expressing the magic of the butterfly.  Feinstein's own quote sums up this lovely book:  "The earth laughs with flowers, but it dances with butterflies." 

My entire family, including my two young daughters, enjoyed paging through this book.  I would think this book would make an beautiful gift for just about anyone you know, including hard-to-buy for people (except for my dear friend Tracy, who has a fear of butterflies that I can never understand).  The list price of this book is $50.00 but you can purchase it at Amazon.com for $33.75 with free shipping.

Disclosure:  I received a copy of this book to facilitate this review.  As always this review contains my honest opinions.
