Bugs Britannica

£9.99

Available in Stock

Like its companion volumes, Flora Britannica and Birds Britannica, this is a richly illustrated cultural, rather than biological guide. Here, British bugs are seen through the eyes of writers, musicians, artists, photographers and naturalists, from Elizabethan proto-entomologist Thomas Muffet (father of Little Miss Muffet) to Irvine Welsh's talking tapeworm in Filth. The result is a beguiling look at some of our 40,000 species of invertebrates - from amoebas, through worms, ants and earwigs, butterflies and beetles to molluscs - and the eccentricities of some human bug obsessives.
