Trading to Extinction the book

Patrick Brown’s ten-year project has been made into a unique photographic book. The photographs have all been shot on black & white film and printed in hand by Patrick himself, enhancing the reality behind the images while enforcing a lost art in classic photography. His work is accompanied by an introduction written by British journalist and author Ben Davies, which takes the reader through a first hand experience of the seedy world of the illegal wildlife trade in Asia.

Trading to Extinction is a high quality photographic book, designed and managed by one of the world’s leading book designers, Stuart Smith from London. The book is printed at one of the very best printing house in the world, Editoriale Bortolazzi Stei (EBS) in northern Italy. To view a few pages from the book: click here
