From The Ultimate Noah‚Äö√Ñ√¥s Ark, by Mike Wilks (London: Michael Joseph, 1993)
Two by two, over seven hundred quirky creatures crowd this eye-twisting, brain-teasing painting by artist and author Mike Wilks. In his book The Ultimate Noah‚Äö√Ñ√¥s Ark, Wilks challenges sharp-eyed viewers to find ‚Äö√Ñ√∫a vociferous insect and a bird with a loud voice,‚Äö√Ñ√π ‚Äö√Ñ√∫a mammal with a nose for luck,‚Äö√Ñ√π ‚Äö√Ñ√∫a talkative antipodean,‚Äö√Ñ√π and a single creature ‚Äö√Ñ√∫alone and without a mate.‚Äö√Ñ√π Might the mateless, mystery creature be clad in a gray business suit and playing a musical instrument? The search begins‚Äö√Ñ¬∂
Known for works of intense complexity, Wilks takes readers to an entertaining and informative carnival of discovery. He invested more than 6,500 hours in researching and creating The Ultimate Noah‚Äö√Ñ√¥s Ark, with zoological information verified by London‚Äö√Ñ√¥s Natural History Museum.
