The Egg - Britta Teckentrup

Shop all - Bookspeed


Is there anything as simple as an egg? Is there anything as complex?

In Britta Teckentrup's hands, a scattering of broken egg shells become abstract art; a nest of unhatched eggs suggest the possibility and promise of life; studies of songbirds and nests are beautifully composed works of colour and line. A lovely meditation on the diversity of eggs, from a hummingbird’s to those of the extinct elephant bird, this magnificent book with 50 illustrations and 96 pages offers hours of lingering pleasure.

The perfect gift for Easter and beyond.
