Description
Audubon and Peterson--move over for a new generation. This reference, the first in a series by Whiting that will depict all of North America's breeding bird species, sets a new standard for visual reference material on avian fauna of North America. Artist/naturalist Whiting invited various painters and sculptors to contribute naturalistic depictions of owls; full-page reproductions of their works comprise the first section. The second section contains Whiting's extraordinary ink drawings and paintings which were created to provide the viewer with the next best thing to a study skin. These paintings were made with meticulous reference to specimens and to photographs (from books, and taken by Whiting himself) and are unmatched in their beauty, accuracy, and ease of interpretation. The illustrations are accompanied by text describing habitat and other particulars of each type of owl, as well as giving general information. The format is large: 10x13.5 . Distributed by ACCESS Publishers Network. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
