This volume is something both artist book and lyric, comprising of excerpts from Colette's writing and drawings by Barye, Seurat, Bonnard, Picasso & Auberjonois. The writer's love for animals and nature structures this discursive "paradise of the earth," moving from the artists' renderings of creatures from snakes to wild cats in ekphrastic chapters.
