120 Audubon Bird Prints [With CDROM] (Dover Electronic Clip Art) (Paperback)
Immortal in his role as "The American Woodsman," John James Audubon -- 19th-century adventurer and artistic genius -- achieved world renown for his realistic paintings of nearly every North American bird species. His hand-colored masterpiece, The Birds of America, is considered one of the world's greatest picture books and represents the very pinnacle of nature illustration. Gathered from that illustrative masterpiece, 120 meticulous reproductions, rendered in full-color, are showcased in this unequaled treasury. Capturing every feathery nuance of their subjects, Audubon's memorable images are an excellent source for designers and craftspeople. This collection includes the snowy egret, wild turkey, Eastern screech owl, glossy ibis, black-capped chickadee, American white pelican, mallard, yellow warbler, Carolina parakeet, and many, many more of America's most beautiful birds.
