Animal Expressions by Judith Hamilton is a small (large postcard sized, about 6" x 4") book of wildlife photography with quotations on the opposite side of each spread. The quotation opposite the cover photo, for example, says this:
In art and dreams, you may proceed with abandon.In life, you must proceed with stealth.
At only 72 pages in length and such a compact size, my first thought when I read it was, "Stocking stuffer!" It is, in fact, the perfect size for a stocking stuffer for the nature lover in your world. My eyes are getting old, so I'd love to see a larger version of Animal Expressions. It appears to be self-published, though, so I imagine that's where the size choice comes in. All of the photos are sharp, expressive, and beautiful. Even though it's small, it would be nice to plunk on a coffee table for guests to flip through.
Recommended - Gorgeous photos, fitting quotations, and half of the proceeds of Animal Expressions will go to a good cause: the Wildlife Conservation Society, where the photographer author has been a trustee for 15 years. Definitely perfect for gift-giving.
