Book Review: The Theater of Insects by Jo Whaley

Book Review: The Theater of Insects by Jo Whaley. This is a book of photographs created by Jo Whaley. There are more than 50 plates beautifully reproduced on very nice paper. The book is published by Chronicle Books in San Fransisco, CA. The book includes essays by Deborah Klochko and Linda Wiener, in addition to Notes from the Studio, by Jo Whaley.

Each photograph is a construction of insects and objects. The objects which she has chosen to complement the insects are often found objects. The compositions are three dimensional. The colors are wonderful. The textures are rich and complementary. A beautiful book.

The Theater of Insects by Jo Whaley is available at DiscountBookSale.com at a very attractive price. I highly recommend getting your own copy.
