Yesterday YCN hosted the launch of Know Your Rodent by Ziggy Hanaor and Thibaud Herem.
“Did you know that 40 per cent of all mammal species in this world are rodents. The skin of the Naked Mole Rat lacks the neurotransmitters that allow it to feel pain. The main difference between a hamster and a gerbil is that the former is nocturnal and the latter isnt. The capybara is the worlds largest rodent, weighing up to 80kg. The African pygmy mouse weighs only seven grams. KnowYour Rodent is an illustrated guide to twenty-three rodent species, which is at once fascinatingly informative and oddly humorous. Brilliantly distinctive drawings by up-and-coming illustrator Thibaud Hérem draw inspiration from such masters as Bruno Munari and Joelle Jolivet, and capture the essence of some of the weirdest and most wonderful creatures the planet has to offer. With a lightness of touch that will appeal to adults and children alike, this offbeat little volume brings together the marvels of nature and the marvels of beautiful design in a perfect little package.”
