Revue de presse :

The real joy of the book is in the photographs by Andrew Perris. They are superb both in detail and quality. I did wonder how they had been achieved - apparently it was in owl sanctuaries - and there are thirty six portraits, each accompanied by a description and information about the owl's hunting habits, call and song, size, habitat and distribution. It was, though, the photographs on which I concentrated. The layering of the plumage is fascinating and seeing the talons as the bird perched on a branch made it obvious that you would be better off not being an object of attention.
I thought this would be a quick read - but it wasn't. Apart from studying each picture I found that it's the sort of book which demands to be shared and a lot of conversations began with 'just have a look at…' and 'can you imagine what...' --The Bookbag.com

Beautiful Owls: Portraits of Arresting Species From Around the World gives readers intimate and amazing views of 36 of the world's most astonishing and attractive owls. The stunning portraits of each bird are accompanied by text that provides even more insights into each raptor, making this book a lovely addition to any birder or owl lover's library.

With Beautiful Owls it is possible to get to know these birds with crisp, focused portraits and engaging text, learning about them in a way that is rarely possible in the field and revisiting their beauty and greatness whenever desired. Birders of all experience levels will appreciate this lovely book, and it can be equally enjoyed by
photographers or anyone with an affinity for owls. --About.com

If you are not captivated by owls then once you have read this book you will be converted... Marianne Taylor is a prolific writer on wildlife subjects... The combination of her writing and the book's photographer, Andrew Perris, has led to this fascinating book on owls. --Highland News
