About this book

Reading-born ornithologist, artist, illustrator and author, Robert Gillmor, has been commissioned by the Royal Mail to produce four sets of pictorial stamps for Post & Go machines featuring British birds. Brought together and reproduced here for the first time in larger-than-stamp size, these prints demonstrate the author's lifelong love and appreciation of our nation's garden birds.

The author's own account of the process by which his lino-cuts are made along with anecdotal descriptions of his bird encounters bring the pictures to life. This beautifully produced collection will be coveted by wild life lovers, artists and stamp collectors alike.
