FEATURING - Hidden Wonders by Dan Lieberman and Rael Loon

Posted on February 01, 2021

The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:

Hidden Wonders by Dan Lieberman and Rael Loon.

The aim of this book was to showcase the superb, high quality slide collection of the photographer, Dan Lieberman. These comprise slides of an array of ‘the small 5005’ including numerous spiders, scorpions, insects, frogs, lizards and snakes. This book also aims to describe and give a taste of the tremendous diversity of these smaller creatures in Southern Africa. While there are many books of birds and mammals, there are but few on reptiles, frogs, insects and spiders and this forms the focus of this book.

The Special Collections unit of the Department of Library Services plays a stewardship role in the acquisition and preservation of the Library's rare and valuable information resources, making them accessible to students, staff and researchers, as well as safeguarding them for future generations.
