Insects eyes by DuChamp

We love insects for many reasons. Few that comes up in my mind, one the way Burroughs keep repeating “insect eyes” in “Naked Lunch”, two because they are aesthetically beautiful, and three for this amazing sci-fi novel, called “Consider her ways” by John Wyndham , one of the most intelligent vision on gender fight. It exist also a very nice episode from the series Alfred Hitchcock hour, inspired by that novel.

On fri Mar 4th there will be the launch of this very interesting insect-related book:
