Birds : The Art of Ornithology (boxed set)
'We couldn't be more enthusiastic about Birds (and birds). It is a dazzling production ... fully in the Audubon tradition' - RalphMag
A richly illustrated book and thirty-six framable prints of bird images from London's Natural History Museum
This beautiful box set is drawn from the unrivalled collection of images at the Natural History Museum, London. It includes exquisitely crafted works from some of the most famous natural history artists ever published including Audubon, Gould, MacGillivray and Bauer. They are complemented by Jonathan Elphick's detailed text, which interweaves ornithological science, art history, biography and travel to create a vivid picture of the lives of both the artists and the birds they painted.
Jonathan Elphick's book is accompanied by 36 stunning frameable prints (333 x 260 mm), pictured below, which have been reproduced directly from the original artworks held by the Museum.
