I am very happy to present an amazing new book here, for which I created the track illustrations in cooperation with the (co-) author and professional tracker Stefanie Argow. »Spuren lesen – Geschichten, die uns die Fährten der Tiere erzählen« tells in an exciting, instructive and often humorous way about the stories behind animal tracks.
In the book, we are showing the tracks of wolf, red fox, raccoon dog, cat, red deer, roe deer, wild boar, badger, stone marten, otter, raccoon, brown hare, beaver, nutria, brown rat, hedgehog, squirrel, heron, crane and raven, as small decorative elements in the continuous text as well as in their full original sizes in the appendix – for everyone who wants to go out and try to find – and decipher – the stories behind some animal tracks themselves!
»A gnawed spruce cone tells us that squirrels live in the park, the round bite marks on nuts, that mice were at work. Tracks of foxes in the snow tell us about nocturnal encounters, hoof prints of roe deer and red deer in the ground show us their way through the undergrowth: In the tracks of wild animals, we read the stories of nature. The book inspires you to go out yourself (…) and follow the tracks of wildlife, to explore nature on your doorstep.« [Blurb]
