NATURE / General

An entrancing guide to the world's most far-fetched creatures - a unique blend of cutting edge science and philosophical meditation on what we humans can learn from the extraordinary animals around us.

From Axolotl to Zebrafish, meet a world of 'barely imagined beings': real creatures that are often stranger and more astonishing than anything dreamt in the pages of a medieval bestiary. Ranging from the depths of the ocean to the most arid corners of the earth, Caspar Henderson captures the beauty and bizarreness of the many living forms we thought we knew and some we could never have contemplated, and invites us to better imagine the world around us. An extraordinary, vivid combination of natural history and spiritual primer, The Book of Barely Imagined Beings is a mind-expanding, wonder-inducing read.

Caspar Henderson has been a journalist and editor with various publications and broadcasters, including BBC Radio 4, the Financial Times, the Independent, Nature, New Scientist and openDemocracy (where he was senior editor for three years). He is a past recipient of an IUCN-Reuters award for best environmental reporting in Western Europe. He co-authored Our Fragile Earth (2005, New Internationalist) and was the commissioning editor for Debating Globalization (2005, Polity).
