Wild Planet - Celebrating Wildlife Photographer of the Year

£ 14.99


This beautiful book includes 80 specially selected photographs from Wildlife Photographer of the Year, with extended captions that explain where and how each image was taken.

The images include previous winning entries and other highly commended photographs and they feature a wide range of natural subjects, from vivid scenes of animal behaviour to breathtaking landscapes, that show just how wonderful, dramatic and awe-inspiring wildlife on Earth is.

Chris Packham has written the foreword to the book. Chris is a wildlife expert, TV presenter and past judge of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

The book ties in with a major new touring exhibition of the same name which, like the book, will showcase these images. This outdoor exhibition will tour major cities in the UK, and is currently on Brighton seafront.
