Walton Ford: Pancha Tantra. Fantastic menagerie. A large format hardcover book published by Taschen that measures an impressive 28 x 37cm and costs a mere £45.
At first glance, Walton Ford’s large-scale, highly-detailed watercolors of animals may recall the prints of 19th century illustrators John James Audubon and Edward Lear, and others of the colonial era. But a closer look reveals a complex and disturbingly anthropomorphic universe, full of symbols, sly jokes, and allusions to the 'operatic' nature of traditional natural history themes.
Leonardo da Vinci Taschen special edition hardcover book with slipcase- also a whopping 25 x 37 cm in size and only £45.
