Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the latest book from highly acclaimed nature photographer Lanting (Okavango: Africa's Last Eden), whose work has appeared in National Geographic, Audubon, and other magazines. Lanting traveled to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and Antarctica to capture the approximately 100 remarkable color photographs of nine penguin species that appear in this volume. Penguins are portrayed as they go about their everyday lives, both close up and against backgrounds of vast, breathtaking natural scenery. There is very little text; Lanting lets his pictures tell their own stories. An image index at the back of the book briefly describes each scene. Readers who want more penguin facts and natural history information, accompanied by similarly outstanding photographs, should consider Wayne Lynch's Penguins of the World (LJ 11/15/97). Lanting's Penguin is especially recommended for photography collections.--William H. Wiese, Iowa State Univ. Lib., Ames Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
