JAN PAUL SCHUTTEN & ARIE VAN 'T RIET | HARDCOVER | 120 PAGES | NON-FICTION | AGES 8 AND UP

DUTCH TITLE: BINNENSTEBINNEN

 

 

Inside InThe animal kingdom looks a lot different when seen through an X-ray machine. Without his feathery coat, the imposing church owl is a tine fellow; while the plump bee suddenly has a wasp's waist; and once the squirrel's woolly coat and fluffy tail are gone, only a monstrous-looking creature remains.

 

In 2018 this unique book with striking X-rays and text by two-time Golden Pencil winner Jan Paul Schutten has been awarded with a Flag & Pennant (honourable mention by the Brush-jury) for the unique photographic concept. From the jury report:

 

"There are many books about nature with photographs, but the here used x-ray technique makes is possible to litteraly show the inside. A strong concept, extremely original and authentic."

 

An English sample translation of the table of contents and some inside pages is available.

 

 

Jan Paul SchuttenJan Paul Schutten (1970) is the multi-award winning Dutch king of non-fiction for young readers. He wrote a great number of books about an ever greater number of subjects, ranging from the Roman Empire to animal language and from evolution to the city of Amsterdam. The Mystery of Life is his self-named magnum opus, and judging from the many prizes won, the critics prove him right.

 

 

Arie van ‘t Riet is one of the few people in the world who has his own X-ray machine at home. So he used it to practice his technique by photographing plants and animals.
