El Arca de Darwin

La Indiana Press University tiene publicado un libro titulado Darwin's Ark con poemas de Philip Appleman e ilustraciones de Rudy Pozzatti que intenta representar el mundo de Darwin de un manera artística desde la poesia y el dibujo. Es un libro curioso, recomendable para los que se lean con fluidez el inglés.
