Book Description

15 Jan 2010
Tigers, a Celebration of Life, is a stunning new book about tigers. Written and photographed by multi-award winning wildlife photographer Andy Rouse, it is beautiful and thought provoking testament to his skill and passion for these highly endangered cats. To support the International Year of the Tiger, Rouse is donating 25% of the profits from this book to tiger conservation projects. So far over £3500 has been donated and with your help we can do more.

Written for tiger lovers, photographers and naturalists alike, Tigers, a Celebration of Life, is educational and inspirational for all ages and interests.

The book begins with a heartfelt forward by BBC Naturalist Mark Cardwardine (star of the highly acclaimed Last Chance to See BBC series), which really sets the tone for the book. The first half of the book is then comprised of stunning galleries of Rouse's work, all tied to a particular aspect of a tiger's life. The difference with this book from many others is that it is peppered with Rouse's personal experiences and anecdotes from working with wild tigers in the field. For example you will read the full story of the incredible fight sequence and how Rouse was stalked by a wild tiger.

For tiger photographers of all skill levels, Rouse has included a section on tiger photography which draws on his years of experience to help the reader get great pictures of tigers and other big cats.

The final third of the book is dedicated to tiger conservation and what you can do to help them. To supplement his own knowledge, Rouse has unselfishly called on the expertise of a world-renowned tiger expert, Sarah Christie, who is the Zoological Society of London's tiger expert and founder of 21st Century Tiger. For this book she has written several essays on tiger status and practical solutions to their conservation. Many readers will not realise the role of zoos in tiger conservation and a joint essay from Rouse and Christie seeks to educate the public as to their role. This book will inspire many to want to see tigers in the wild and the final section of the book covers ecotourism and begins with an essay from Aditya Singh(a hotelier and tiger addict from Ranthambhore National Park in India). Then follows detailed information from Andy Rouse on where to go to see tigers and all the things that you need to know when planning your trip. This is based on years of taking groups of tourists on tiger safaris and will help you get the most out of your tiger experience.

Tigers, a Celebration of Life, is a beautiful book, packed with inspiring images and thought provoking text. Rouse says "I have worked very hard on the text to ensure that my emotional connection with tigers shines through and encourages you to love these amazing cats".

So far the book has been a great success, BBC Wildlife magazine just reviewed the book and gave it 4 stars with the final comment "a beautiful and inspiring offering to win over tiger lovers". Here also are some reader comments from people who have already purchased the book:

"It is fantastic, not just great images but fantastic information too. I love it and also the print that came with the Special Edition copy."

"I got my copy - can't put it down, it's awesome"

"Fantastic book Andy!, can recommend the Collectors Edition to anyone, the print alone is worth the extra, let alone the donation to tiger conservation!"

"Can't put the book down - stunning photos and an inspiration for helping save the tiger."

"Breathtaking images, but that's expected, it's the commitment to the tiger and its environment that comes from every line of text which grabs the attention."

"This book is inspiring. In 2010 the Year of the Tiger, it is great that photographers and conservationists come together on such an important issue as saving the wild tiger"

"A stunning collection of images which are accompanied by a personal, and thought provoking, narrative. The developing style of Andy Rouse has produced another outstanding book, a must for any collection."

Tigers, a Celebration of Life, has been designed by the award winning Eddie Ephraums. It is a beautiful book to own and one where each purchase will be making a difference to the future of this amazing cat.

Review

A beautiful and inspiring offering to win over tiger lovers - 4 stars
--BBC Wildlife Magazine, April 2010

From the Author

This new book has been a labour of love as tigers need our help. Their population is now down to a few thousand and I cannot just sit back and watch these magnificent animals fade into the night. This my first self published book (but my 14th book to date). I have produced it to coincide with both the International and Chinese Year of the Tiger and the book will hope to raise awareness of tigers as well as donating 25% of its profits to tiger conservation projects in the field. I launched the book several months ago to my Facebook fan page and website mailing list and I am pleased to announce that we have just donated over £3500 to tiger conservation from the initial sales. This has been split between the projects that are discussed within the book, namely 21st Century Tiger, the EIA, Phoenix Fund and Freeland Foundation. All of these organisations work in different areas of tiger conservation, from anti-poaching to education and cross border trafficking. We will continue to make these donations from the sales of the book and thank you in advance for making a difference.

I have produced the book to the highest standards of printing and colour reproduction and it contains my best images to date. It is a deeply personal insight into the life of a tiger.

Come inside and immerse yourself in the wonder of a tiger's life......

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous Book! 27 April 2010
Yet another stunning book from Andy Rouse. Andy's tiger photographs are just amazing ... but what else would I expect from such a stunning photographer? Andy captures tigers as they are... scars and all - no fancy photoshop work to 'pretty them up' this book is about the real tigers of our planet that we are so close to losing forever. Extremely well written and very thought provoking.

This book is a must for everyone not just tiger, wildlife and photography lovers. Everyone should read it and realise that we must do everything we can to save these beautiful creatures. This book is also a must for all animal and wildlife lovers and photographers - Andy is, as always so generous with his knowledge and techniques - very well worth the read and the learn!

Well done Andy for putting such an important and beautiful piece of work together

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Book from a superb Photographer! 27 April 2010
If you like Tigers you will LOVE this book! The images are out of this world as you would expect from one of the worlds leading wildlife photographers. The book outlines the plight of this magnificent beast and will keep you reading page after page until all you have left is to look at the images within it. The images are all top drawer and the images showing the Tigers fighting will make you give the Tiger even more respect. Go on buy this book as you will also be helping the Tiger by doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!! 27 April 2010
By Les
As one would expect from Andy Rouse, it goes without saying that the photography is superb. However, the text is interesting and thought-provoking too and all in a very good cause that deserves supporting. A word on the print quality too - it really is top class.

The book is hardback, not paperback as stated. Go on, treat yourself; you know it makes sense!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent work 27 April 2010
Another excellent publication by Andy Rouse and testament again to his place as one of the worlds best wildlife photographers. The quality of the photography is excellent throughout, as is the detail around Tigers themselves and their plight. As a huge Tiger fan, this has easily become my favourite book on the subject, and with a large portion of the proceeds of this book going to Tiger conservation everyone will benefit.

Great work, and I strongly recommend this to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 27 April 2010
As a fan of both big cats and wildlife photography, I was very keen to buy this and certainly wasn't disappointed.
The pictures really are stunning and some of them show a side to tigers that you rarely see.
It also has the added bonus that sales are supporting the work to try and save these beautiful cats so I highly recommend it- it's a book to dip into time and time again!
