Back in 2013, the Mr B’s team became infatuated with a gorgeous-looking work of quite unusual natural history. The Book of Barely Imagined Beings by Caspar Henderson is a one-of-a-kind plunge into the furthest reaches of our planet’s wildlife. It introduced us to creatures we’d sooner expect to find in fairy tales, than in our oceans and woods. Four years later, we still enjoy dipping in and out of this one on occasion, in order to re-visit the goblin shark or the amazing sea butterfly.
To our great delight, this November sees the publication of Caspar Henderson’s new exploration into the realm of the very real, but nearly unimaginable. Just as beautifully put together as his previous book, A New Map of Wonders seeks to rekindle a sense of marvel in our over-explored world, where we may think there is little left to discover. This time we’re invited to explore the hidden quirks of the human body, and of the greatest works of art, as well as unbelievable stories from human history. Here’s a writer with a passion and curiosity so contagious that we marvel as much at his ability to enthuse, as at the phenomena he describes. A New Map of Wonders is a feast for the eyes, and for the thirsty imagination.
Join us to hear Caspar talk about his most recent journeys of exploration, and about the many mysteries that are still to be discovered all around us. You might never see your surroundings in the same light again.
