Counting Lions: Portraits from the Wild: In this magnificent large format book, counting is perhaps the least important aspect, filled as it is with meticulously executed charcoal portraits of endangered creatures including lions, elephants, gorillas, wolves and turtles. The artwork stuns, but the words are also beautiful – brief, poetic text (in luminous orange) accompanies each captivating illustration. Further information is found at the back including protection status and other facts. Irresistible.
