Last Chance to See

Stephen Fry & Mark Carwardine’s followup to Douglas Adams’ 1990 book & radio series.  A generally desperate series of illustrations of mankind’s decimation of our natural habitat and the ecological collateral damage that ensues, although seldom over-earnest and mawkish.  Tough one for me, because it’s one of my favourite books ever… and as much as I love Stephen Fry, there’s no way he could come close to holding a candle to Douglas Adams.
