    От издателя:
    Животные выглядят совсем отлично. В этой книге имеется целый ряд моделей, которые каждый может сделать при помощи иглы. Первые настолько просты, что даже у начинающих не будет трудностей. А опытные почерпнут новые идеи.

    От себя(gryoza):
    Потрясающая иностранная книга про войлочных зверей. Мастерицы непременно должны увидеть эту потрясающую красоту. Как все изготавливается, понятно и по картинкам, без текста.

    Из предисловия:
    Датская художница войлока Биргитта Краг Хансен разработала метод работы с войлоком, который содействует, чтобы животное выглядело точно таким образом, как человек представляет его себе. При изготовлении лягушки, например, она достает маленькие пучки шерсть при помощи иглы - это похоже на акварель. Можно создавать расплывчатые цветные переходы.
    Этот метод, этот принцип, автор оттачивала многие годы. В ее многих курсах и мастер-классах это проверялось, так сказать, на сердце и почках.
    Все поклонники войлока, которые ищут новые идеи, будут впечатлены гениальной техникой звериного войлока госпожи Ханса.

    Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins´ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender those steuern und dirigieren unsere von new release zu new release weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen additionally unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der likelihood, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.
