Currently Reading: The spirit of butterflies

I recently finished reading “An Obsession with Butterflies” and after carefully reading through the bibliography have recently ordered a number of books used as references.

One of these books, I had already purchased and had started to read before I noticed it was among the bibliography–

The Spirit of Butterflies: Myth, Magic and Art by Maraleen Manos-Jones

The book takes an anthropological, historical and sociological look at diurnal lepidoptera , “it celebrates the significance of the butterfly in mythology, religion, superstition, literature and the arts.”
