Following in the success of internationally acclaimed artist Hunt Slonem, Butterflies is the third book in his art/nature series, following Bunnies and Birds (also published by G Editions).
Butterflies offers an intimate portrait of an insect that many of us take for granted but is viewed the world over as a symbol of transformation. With an oversized presentation (11 x 14”), the book is filled with colorful butterflies rendered on the page in repetitive patterns, and Slonem approaches his subject through varied techniques. The perfect gift to accompany the previous titles of the nature trilogy—Birds and Bunnies—the large format of Butterflies serves simultaneously as a book and a work of art where certain pages do not depict the forms of butterflies so much as they imply their fluttering movement through the bright and bold strokes of Slonem’s brush. British art historian, Matthew Wilson, and culture critic, Carlo McCormick, also contribute a foreword and essay, which situate the butterfly and Slonem’s work as subjects of historical significance.
