KING OF BEASTS: A Study of the African Lion
Mahogany-colored leather-bound books with gold foil-stamping, signed and numbered by John Banovich
John Banovich believes he was born to tell the lion’s story—from its ancient past to its troubling future. And in the new KING OF BEASTS, a strikingly beautiful 12- by 11-inch book, he tells that story the best way he knows how—by painting Africa’s most storied predator.
Over his illustrious 26-year career as one of the world’s foremost wildlife artists, John has continued to draw and paint the African lion more than any other subject, simply because no other animal speaks to him quite the same way.
From LiveOak Press, publishers of Sporting Classics, King of Beasts – A Study of the African Lion showcases 134 stunning color plates and 20 drawings of the lion and the many fascinating creatures that share the big cat’s wild domain.
Written by David Cabela, an expert on conservation, wildlife and things Africa, King of Beasts pays homage to not only to lions but also to Banovich and his remarkable achievements in art and conservation. Two editions available, each signed by John Banovich.
