    Just when I put away the insect repellent….well now these are my kind of “Pheremone’s” –
    Love to own this book. I have an Hermes scarf crawling with bugs that I adore and it always gets tons of compliments.

    I’m so sorry I missed his launch at Saks! The day got away from me, but thanks for giving us a sample of what he was showing! I love his art. (And I’m not allergic to these kinds of bugs!)

    ooh. Thanks for posting this! I really like how he got into this & it’s so true. When I think of bugs, there’s an automatic ick factor. But the images from the book are beautiful. Love the name of it too!

    I first fell in love with Chris’s work on a trip to S.F. about 6 years ago. His work was at Gump’s, and I didn’t notice it until I was walking out the door. Needless to say, I spent an extra half an hour there, enjoying the eye candy. My email is

    After seeing Christopher’s stand at the fair and all those amazing works of art up close, I’m a dedicated fan. Love his work, it’s absolutely mind boggling. I’d love his book – count me in!

    Christopher Marley makes his “subjects” sparkle. The book is an extraordinary reminder of the beauty we often miss in nature. Owning this book would make me sparkle!
