For an amateur entomologist (or any entomologist) my version is wholly useless as an identifier of insects
on 28 July 2015
The illustrated darker (more orangey ragwort) book cover for the kindle version compares to a lighter (correct more yellowy) cover to the hard copy offered on Amazon. I have a 'dark cover' hard copy bought cheaply off another online selling site. Does print colour inside the two versions follow the cover tone one wonders? For an amateur entomologist (or any entomologist) my version is wholly useless as an identifier of insects. Many of the illustrated insects, originally photographed one assumes from digital photos in the field, supply no help whatsoever in being very poorly transposed to the colour printed page of my book. Perhaps there was a duff print run that found a place on sales book shelves that I have, unfortunately, bought, I thought, at a bargain. There really should be standards in colour printings. Taxonomy and ID of creature books particularly require accuracy in colour and detail. Otherwise, what’s the point? A disgraceful book that should be exposed to "Fahrenheit 451".
