For those who are fascinated by snakes but too frightened to approach them, this book captures these incredible creatures. Each spread is transformed into a box displaying the extraordinary colours, shapes and textures of a writhing, coiling snake. Snakes have a very simple design, yet their variety is immense. The reticulated python is heavy bodied, while the green cat snake is thread thin. The rainbow boa sparkles with iridescence and the mangrove snake flaunts startling warning colours. The text design works with the shape of each snake. By explaining its different features, the reader can discover how each snake is particularly suited for its habitat, lifestyle and method of hunting.
