At the start of the 19th century, John James Audubon embarked upon an epic ornithological quest. With nothing but his artist’s materials, an assistant, a gun and an all-consuming passion, he set out to study and paint all of America’s birds…
Audubon’s seminal work, The Birds of America, is considered one of the finest masterpieces of natural history and art. This embellished graphic novel, based on Audubon’s own retellings, not only captures the spirit of early America’s unexplored wilderness but also the rise of this exceptional artist to become one of the greatest natural historians ever.
