Peterson's Birds: The Art and Photography of Roger Tory Peterso

by , ,

For more than seventy years, Roger Tory Peterson painted and photographed the birds of the world. One of the most iconic personas in the birding world, Peterson is recognized as the preeminent ornithologist of the twentieth century, and deeply influenced generations of birders. One need only look to the increasing popularity of birdwatching (there are an estimated fifty million birders in the U.S. alone) and the ongoing demand of such current authorities in the field as David Sibley-who unquestionably wears the mantle that Peterson's work helped to create-to observe the scope of Peterson's contributions and influence. "Peterson's Birds: The Art and Photography of Roger Tory Peterson" presents an extraordinary body of work profiling the artwork of one of America's greatest birders. Originally available as a deluxe hardcover, this condensed edition is affordably accessible to birders of all levels. Peterson's Birds celebrates Dr. Peterson's artistic career in its entirety and in all media-oil painting, acrylics, watercolors, prints, book illustrations, photography, and filmmaking." Peterson's Birds" is an essential visual companion for serious and armchair birders alike. Hide synopsis
