It's one of the best art books I've ever seen, and will work perfectly both as a birthday gift or a coffee table book for you own humble self. The author admits that the book is "a pictorial introduction" rather than a "comprehensive survey", but I think its comprehensive enough for the general reader. It shows paintings and other illustrations of birds from ancient Egypt, Rome, medieval bestiaries and the Renaissance. The book also contains an appendix about print collecting. Although "The art of bird illustration" is a real book with both texts and illustrations, I found the illustrations (all in color) to be its strongest side. My favourite: "Peacock and peacock" by Archibald Thornburn, a painting which shows a peacock looking down at a peacock butterfly! OK, that's my humor.
Book Description Bird illustration has been of interest since the Egyptian tomb painters included wildfowl to sustain the dead on their journey into the world beyond. A journey through the history of bird illustration - from ancient Egypt through to the modern day - this book features over 100 plates reproduced in their original colour.
