Portraits of Spiders

Have you already taken the time to observe these eight-legged creatures, so fascinating in their way of life that they deserve more than the fear they so often inspire. Anyone with a curious nature can go into this silky universe here and its unusual features - appearance, hunting techniques, caring for the young and the ability of spiders to produce this silk so coveted by the biotechnologies. This sublimely illustrated work unveils delightful portraits of spiders in an approach that is both scientific and artistic. Let yourself be guided as you turn the pages on a walk in France and in Europe above all, that even takes in the smallest crannies in your houses!
