About this book

In any game of word association the term "bird sculptor" is most likely to prompt the name Guy Taplin. But Britain's most successful avian image-maker is also in a field of his own - with a story like no other in the art world.

A beautiful and revelatory new book about the Taplin life and work will chart a riveting journey from the war-time East End to the wilds of the Essex coast. En route the self-taught artist, careering through many careers before finding his feet and pouring his spirit into sculpture, has meandered as far as the driftwood he turns into magical art.

With a foreword by Michael Palin.
