Description Mark Fairnington's paintings of insects are highly detailed, with specimens taken from existing collections and from his own travels in South America. This illustrated text looks at the history of collecting and classifying insects, with examples from the 18th and 19th century alongside Fairnington's contemporary studies. Art historian Mark Gisbourne contextualizes Fairnington's work in terms of both science and art, whilst entomologist Dr George McGavin gives a personal account of a field trip to Belize, in search of unknown species.
