This is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful books of the year.
Giraffe Reflections (University of California Press, $39.95) is the most comprehensive work on giraffes to appear in the last 50 years; a volume that presents a magnificent portrait of a group of animals who, in spite of their legendary elegance and astonishing gentleness, may not entirely survive this century.
Karl Ammann, who has photographed wildlife throughout Africa, India and Southeast, is a genius. Some 120 stunning photographs by this award-winning photographer capture the grace and elegance of Giraffa camelopardalis. Both beautiful and informative, the images document giraffes’ complex interactions with each other and their environment.
Dale Peterson’s text provides a natural and cultural history of the world’s tallest and second-biggest land animals, describing in detail their biology and behavior. He offers a new perspective on the giraffes’ place in our world, and argues for the stronger protection of these imposing yet endangered creatures and their elusive forest relatives, the okapis.
