I bought this for my 8 year old who loves animal skeletons. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. I have seldom encountered a “coffee table” book that offered so much intellectual and visual stimulation. This is a spectacular, coffee table-sized book. Had the publisher merely printed this book in a larger format – it would be an indispensable source of reference and its photos might have been fully appreciated. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

For example, Chapter 16 is “The Sparrow’s Beak”, and a brief amount of information relating to the diversity that sparrows beaks come in is given, followed by photos of various species of sparrow skulls. I’m intrigued by the subject and this approach, comparing similar skeletons by eliminating all other variables and just showing the bare bones as it were in black and white. I recommend that you look for a good used copy of the larger, older edition.

The most beautiful collection panafieh animal skeleton photos in one place. The only problem I encountered was the fact that my copy was bound upside down!

Dylan Taylor rated it it was amazing Mar 10, Spectacular, mysterious, elegant, or grotesque, the skeletons of the vertebrates that inhabit the evolugion today carry within them the imprint of an evolutionary process that has lasted several billion years. This smaller format just doesn’t do the photos justice. Unprecedented in its approach, the number and diversity of the species presented, and the quality of the photographs, Evolution is the book on how we came to be what we are.

Each chapter is made up of a short text that illuminates one theme of the evolutionary process—repetition, adaptation, polymorphism, sexual selection, and more—and a series of exquisitely composed photographs of skeletons against a black background.
