Week One of our Bird Book of the Week series as also a Matt Sewell book and this time we’re revisiting his phenomenal work with Our Woodland Birds.
This book is filled with Sewell’s beautiful watercolour illustrations of British woodland birds. We’ve included it because many people live in rural Britain and near woodlands where these birds are likely to either visit your garden or be seen on local walks.
Each double page spread has a detailed and endearing illustration of a bird with the whisical yet accurate description across the page.
No one could possible fail to fall in love with this exquisite book!
Sewell specialises in hilarious descriptions of the birds he loves. It’s clear that each is born out of long and in-depth study of our local birds.
Each bird is easy to recognise despite its watercolour rendering and the descriptions will make you revisit the book time and time again.
Birds inside include:
- Tree Pipit
- Black Redstart
- Tawny Owl
- and even the ring-necked parakeet!
Published by Ebury and available as a hardcover (we recommend this one because it’s a book that should be admired in hard copy) and as an eBook. Its dimensions are 14.3 x 1.5 x 19.2 cm so it’s not an outsized book and fits neatly in the bookshelf.
A perfect gift or coffee table book, this is a must-have for anyone living near woodland.
and have it in front of you in no time at all!
