Details:

My formal interest in butterflies and moths dates back to grammar school, and my year in fourth grade at Franklin School in Wakefield, Massachusetts. More

My teacher, Miss Reagan, was a real enthusiast for most aspects of natural history, but she had an especially warm place in her heart for winged insects. I came to share this interest to such an extent that she allowed me to make a 'lecture circuit' within the school, discoursing on topics like the moth/butterfly dichotomy within the Lepidoptera Order, etc. When I think back on this it seems so improbable—but I did do it. Of course, today I don't remember many of the distinguishing differences, save that moths have those complex antennae, and butterflies have the simple, straight ones… In this collection we tried to diverge from the approach that Carol Grafton took in her wonderful collections on the subject, and to include both graphical and naturalistic images. Of particular note are the images from Kanzaka Sekka's—A Flight of Butterflies, and a rare compendium of highly-stylized, chinese butterfly designs. In total, the collection offers 235 superb color images. To get a sense of how good these images are, take a look at the South American Blue Morpho on image sheet 18-19.
