The Egg

Is there anything as simple as an egg? Is there anything as complex? In Britta Teckentrup's hands, a scattering of broken eggshells become abstract art; a nest of unhatched eggs suggests the possibility and promise of life; studies of songbirds and nests are beautifully composed works of colour and line. A lovely meditation on the diversity of eggs, from a hummingbird's to those of the extinct elephant bird, this magnificent book offers hours of lingering pleasure with unusual facts and beautiful illustrations.
