Peter Vos - 333 Birds
|Author||S. Woldhek E.a.|
The Dutch illustrator and graphic artist Peter Vos (1935–2010) was fascinated by birds and diligently recorded all sorts in bird diaries. Although he also made many drawings of metamorphoses, mythical creatures, and erotic scenes, all characterised by a melancholic sense of humour, Vos is probably best known for his pen-and-ink drawings and watercolours of birds. The album ‘333 Birds’ is undoubtedly a high point in his career, comprising accurate depictions of well over 100 different species. This facsimile, published four decades after Vos completed his album together with a wealth of introductory texts and illustrations, is a beautiful tribute to the winged creatures he most cherished.
