September 8, 2010Buiten-Beeld delivers all pictures for Dorrestijns Natureguide
At 5 september “Dorrestijns Natureguide” was presented at Manuscripta Amsterdam; the opening of the book season.Dorrestijns Natureguide is a collection of texts, poems and anecdotes, in which Hans Dorrestijn gives his unique and sometimes hilarious vision on the European fauna. He would have liked to describe all beautiful, funny and crazy animals in this book, but the amount was too big. Dorrestijn made a personal choice of the fauna of Europe.
Buiten-Beeld supplied all (over 500) photos for this book. Previously Buiten-Beeld delivered all photos for Dorrestijn Bird Guide. Partly because of the appealing photographs, this book became a real bestseller.
Dorrestijns Nature guide has 272 pages and for sale in any Dutch bookstore.
