A Yearbook for Larry
images of biodiversity, form and environment
with emphasis on unfamiliar organisms
written by Valerie and presented to Larry on Christmas, 1998
This book contains 52 drawings; one for every week of the year. The subjects were chosen mainly for their decorative and ornamental attributes and fall into several categories: the signs of the zodiac, holidays, two temperature sequences, and "life on Earth" using various living organisms in the designs. The plants, creatures, and fungi depicted are often unfamiliar, for one or more reasons: they are very small, they are uncommon, they hide quite well, or they occur in areas that are seldom visited by humans.
The poems and captions are all original and were written specifically for this book. This work was created for Larry. Its purpose is entertainment and amusement.
