Bird: Exploring the Winged World


the details

Bird: Exploring the Winged World reveals how artists, illustrators, ornithologists, and photographers – from ancient Egypt to the present – have captured the spirit, character, and symbolism of birds. From Tweety Pie to the Twitter bird; from 2-inch-tall ivory statuettes to birds as 300-foot desert carvings; bird bones to bird bank notes – the book's 300 visually stunning entries span four thousand years of fine art, photography, ornithological drawings, popular culture, and scientific discovery from all corners of the globe.
