Raven and Crows

Did you know,
• what the difference is between ravens and crows?
• that in ancient Rome they were considered as prophets?
• that ravens have special warning calls for a.o. cats, for hawks or for humans?
• that there are 250 different crow calls
• that raven can recognize people and remember faces

Ravens have in common with humans that they pass on acquired knowledge to following generations, which means, that they have something like what we call culture. And so, it is no wonder why ravens play such a large roll in religion, poetry, literature and art.

In this unique book all this, and much more is told in words and pictures by Britta Teckentrup.

Britta Teckentrup is a remarkable artist. Anyone who has ever seen a book by her will recognize her visual language. Klaus Nowak, 1001 Buch
