20×200 does it again..

Posted by Alix on 5 December 2008

20×200 have another great print for sale – I mentioned Jason Polan’s booklet for them a couple months back – this print is Jane Mount’s ‘132 Birds Leaving AMNH (Response to Jason Polan)‘, about which she says

“..in my head, the birds would all eventually rustle up their feathers and fly away, out of their stuffed-ness, needing a day off, once a year or so (maybe on Christmas Day when the museum is closed?), to whirl around and stretch their wings before settling back in the museum to be marveled at again. So I painted them their day off”

    Quite a mixed flock.
    I picked up a book at a used book sale: The Junior Book of Birds (1939) by Roger Tory Peterson.
    A book for young people. Full of beautiful colored plates of North American birds.
