One Man's Birds by Eric Ennion

One Man's Birds focuses on the field sketches which Eric Ennion made in the 1930's and which remained at the heart of his work as a wildlife artist for the next 40 years. The book reproduces 475 individual studies as well as the 26 composite plates which he prepared for Bird Man's River (the text of which was only rediscovered after One Man's Birds had been published). The text of One Man's Birds is taken mostly from Eric's magazine articles of the period and includes material he prepared for a projected book about bird holidays. Edited and with an introduction by Bob Walthew.

144 pages (280 x 240 mm). Colour illustrations throughout.
