Birds: The Art of Ornithology
Book was tossed loose into a too-big box. Dust cover ripped open. This is obviously an art book. I'm pretty annoyed they damaged it like this.
This book is beautiful and I'm learning many new things. The pictures are wonderful and it's interesting to see how style has changed over the centuries.
A splendid, sturdy, hardcover book that goes in-depth historically about the various first recorded bird artists. Beautiful prints of artwork throughout. Very reasonable price for this hardcover beauty. Well worth it, especially if you’re a birder, artist, or have interests in art history.
