Описание: We share the Earth with more than 10,000 species of birds and we have always been enchanted by them. Here, over 60 birds, organized thematically into eight sections, cover all aspects of our relationship with birds. ‘Songbirds’ celebrates the greatest bird virtuosi, such as the Nightingale, while ‘Birds of Prey’ include majestic hunters such as the Harpy Eagle, which catches prey as large as monkeys and sloths. ‘Feathered Travellers’ describes astounding journeys made by birds – even some tiny Hummingbirds migrate huge distances. ‘The Love Life of Birds’ can rival any soap opera and involves the most brilliant displays, notably the Birds of Paradise, with their extravagant feathers and dances. ‘Avian Cities’ explores species such as the Flamingo that live in spectacular large colonies. ‘Useful to Us’ examines the ways we find birds of value, such as the Turkey, but also the Canary. ‘Threatened and Extinct’ describes some no longer living and others that seem on the brink. Birds have also had great mystical significance, both for good and evil, and ‘Revered and Adored’ considers such species as the Sacred Ibis, believed by the ancient Egyptians to represent the god Thoth.
For anyone interested in the natural world and the wonderful variety of birds around us, this beautifully illustrated book is a visual treat that will inspire, inform and delight.

Описание: A Masterpiece Of Persian Literature Illustrated By 207 Persian,Turkish, Afghan And Indo-Pakistani Miniatures From The Fourteenth To The Seventeenth Centuries, From Public And Private Collections From Around The World.
Описание: Accounts of paintings produced during the Mughal dynasty (1526-1857) tend to trace a linear, "evolutionary" path and assert that, as European Renaissance prints reached and influenced Mughal artists, these artists abandoned a Persianate style in favor of a European one. Kavita Singh counters these accounts by demonstrating that Mughal painting did not follow a single arc of stylistic evolution. Instead, during the reigns of the emperors Akbar and Jahangir, Mughal painting underwent repeated cycles of adoption, rejection, and revival of both Persian and European styles. Singh`s subtle and original analysis suggests that the adoption and rejection of these styles was motivated as much by aesthetic interest as by court politics. She contends that Mughal painters were purposely selective in their use of European elements. Stylistic influences from Europe informed some aspects of the paintings, including the depiction of clothing and faces, but the symbolism, allusive practices, and overall composition remained inspired by Persian poetic and painterly conventions. Closely examining magnificent paintings from the period, Singh unravels this entangled history of politics and style and proposes new ways to understand the significance of naturalism and stylization in Mughal art.

Описание: Literally a classroom-in-a-book, this engaging volume enables virtually anyone with a band saw, rotary power tool and a few of the most common cutting burrs to bring birds, fish, and even penguins to life beautifully! Professional artist-woodcarver Gene Larson demonstrates in words and pictures why he concentrates on simplicity of form, and how even a beginner can use a block of wood the way a sculptor would use a piece of marble. With a unique ability to reduce a complicated subject to its most basic components, Gene provides step-by-step guidance (from the wood block up) on the creation of shapes that have the look and feel of great works of art. Beginning with the selection of the right wood, stressing the simplicity that conveys and impression of so much more, and ending with a proper finish. Gene shows you how to create works he calls sketches in wood. You and your friends will surely call them works of art.

Описание: What do Tyrannosaurus rex and Erithacus rubecula (the common European Robin) have in common? Much more than you might realize - for the robin in your
garden is a modern dinosaur - albeit a small one, but perhaps just as aggressive as its distant giant relative. The origins of the birds has until now been one of the great enigmas of
evolution. Fossils rarely show soft tissues such as hair and feathers, the crucial proof needed to find the missing links in the evolutionary trail from reptile to bird.
discovery seven years ago of the first dinosaur from the fine-grained slate of the Lianoning Province of China, there was no hard evidence to prove the theory that birds came from a
family of feathered dinosaurs. Now it is believed that feathers were relatively common among the meat-eating dinosaurs. It is even thought possible that Tyrannosaurus rex may even
have had fluffy chicks! This text explores the ever-growing evidence supporting the evolution of dinosaurs to birds.
Dinosaur expert Angela Milner looks at the astounding
fossil "feathery" dinosaurs from China and the bird fossils from other sights around the world, to take us on a journey from those dinosaurs to the birds we see today. Looking at the
people involved and the debates that ensued, this should be an exciting little book packed with information on every page and illustrated throughout.
