“British Moths: To Colour-in and Learn About”
On the back of the success of our British butterfly colouring book, we’re very excited to announce the arrival of a second (companion) book for budding lepidopterists both young and old, in association with the Royal Entomological Society; “British Moths: to Colour in and Learn About”.
The new book takes a similar format to the first book of the series, looking at 32 different British moth species from around the British Isles.
It features a foreword by BBC Spring Watch TV presenter and naturalist Iolo Williams, a full colour poster pull-out guide and some interesting facts to learn about on every page. Here’s a little snippet from the foreword:
In the UK, we have more than 2,500 species of moths and more than 150 actually fly by day. Many of these, such as the garden tiger and the cinnabar moth are as beautiful as any butterfly and I defy anyone to not be impressed by the size and variety of our hawk moths.
The beautiful centre page poster colour guide makes it very easy for you to find your colour match when picking between pens, pencils, pastels or paints, and the accompanying notes and statistics will help you learn about your subject in more depth as you start colouring.
Each moth is conveniently arranged by group in the contents, and you may note some similarities (wing shape, colouration) between those in the same group.
The index at the rear of the book also provides a spotting area where you can mark down any sightings and the external resources section includes some very useful links if you would like to research your favourite moth in more depth.
Moths may often be overlooked simply due to the fact they are more nocturnal by nature and we hope this book will showcase some of the amazing colourful UK species that can be found in your own back garden (if you’re lucky).
