The Book of the Bird: Birds in Art (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
A stunning collection of artistic renditions of some of the most colorful and moody species of avians produced throughout the ages and mediums. To say the artists and their works are curated in this is an acceptable review. Picasso, Klimt, and Durer; classical oils, Japanese wood blocks, modernist, and abstract: this a perfect little coffee table book. Thumb through it again and again…— From Sara's Picks
The Book of the Bird celebrates the bird in art with an elegant, international collection of paintings, illustrations, and photographs, featuring all kinds of birds from the smallest tits and wrens to colourful exotics.
Interspersed though the illustrations are short texts giving background to the pictures and information on bird species. This is the perfect gift for all bird lovers.
