John James Audubon would be proud to know that a life-size bird book is alive in the 21st century. You won't need Sotheby's auction house to buy Life Size Birds, though! Full-size images of beautiful feathered friends offer a detailed look at each North American species, while scaled photographs of larger birds allow you to see the entire animal. Fun facts pepper the pages, and a summary of general information accompanies each avian. Get an up-close, personal look at the world's masters of flight!
The book measures 307 × 358 mm (W × H).
"[...] Life-Size Birds: The Big Book of North American Birds is a wonderful concept that had great potential to ignite an interest in birds. It does many things right – it is a visual treat and includes a wide variety of birds. Unfortunately, errors are rampant. It could still serve its intended purpose; personally, I plan on keeping it available near the windows overlooking our birdfeeders so that my kids can peruse it. But I would only recommend doing so if there is someone around who can point out the mistakes."
