An Australian Bird Watchers' Pocket Bookby Grahame King
Grahame King (born 1915), a pioneering Australian modernist with works in major collections, has illistrated this charming 96 page miniature book with humorous impressions of the species he observed on a bird watchers' tour in the Northern Territory back in the 1970's. The sketches are accompanied by verses penned by Sydney poet, Jim Allen. Kings gentle sense of humour is revealed in his versions of birds such as the ' Sprangled Drongo ', ' The Great Australian Hobby ', and the ' Two-eyed Frog Parrot '. His more familier artistry is represented by reproductions of some Northern Territory landscape sketches and prints. This charming little book, illistrated by a renowned Australian artist makes an ideal gift, specially for the bird-lover.
