In praise of...


Hidden amongst a dusty box of miscellaneous cast-offs I discovered a little gem of a book called 'In Praise Of Birds' at one of Bristol's local car boot sales. The cover is an absolutely beautiful piece of design and although it's not directly credited anywhere, I believe it may well be the illustration work of Keith Shackleton, who has illustrated the inside of the book.

Published in 1954, I'm now on the hunt to view more from the same series, so it was with great delight to discover that my studio mate Lucy Davey has 'In Praise Of Rivers'.
