Product Details


“At 10×12 inches, this could be called a coffee-table book. If left to the eyes of guests, however, it likely would become a serious distraction to whatever else the hosts had in mind. It is a beautiful piece of work, exactly what one would expect.” –Star Tribune (Wingnut blog)
“The majority of pages present large, beautiful photographs and illustrations from the National Geographic archives spanning the last 130 years, by skilled artists and photographers…This impressive offering is as much a work of art as it is a book on ornithology. This celebration of the beauty of birds and their importance to humankind and the world is highly recommended for lovers of birds, nature, and art.” –Library Journal
“There has always been a thing, a distinctive way of photographic illustration, called the “Geographic eye,” and it is well evident in this gorgeous book…It’s what the book calls “street photography of the wild side,” as opposed to mere bird eye candy…There is though, something distinctive and special about National Geographic photography that makes this volume a treasure.” –10.000birds

“The pictures were stunning and I learned a lot, despite being able to page through it pretty quickly. I’d highly recommend it as a gift for the birder or photographer in your life. I enjoyed this immensely.” –
