More of a documentation of them in the wild. The photos are wonderful in color, so I would invest in the color version instead of the black and white. These books too often go out of print quickly and are only available on the secondary market.
I bought the "Black & White Photography Edition" and returned it to right away. The photographs are of shockingly poor quality, it seems they have been converted from the (digital) colour images of the normal edition without any care. They look pixelated and are very low in contrast so some of them have lost the details almost completely. Although this edition is very cheap in comparison I would not recommend it.By the way: "Carnivorous Plants" from Adrian Slack and Jane Gate shows how brilliant black & white photographs look like (however, these have been taken as such and not been converted from other sources).
I really enjoyed Mr. Honda's book. I have been growing CPs for 15+ years, and own several books on the subject, and this volume is like a breath of fresh air. Although not a book on cultivation of these plants (of which there are already many), it offers a vivid peek into the natural habitats and life cycles of the different species. Beautiful close up & panoramic photographs will spark a fire in the heart in even the most jaded CPer, and the text is very well written...ranging from purely scientific to beautifully poetic. Very well done, I highly recommend it!
this book was an amazeing read, Five stars! I would reccommend new readers look at it to learn how to raise these plants
