Описание: John Muir Laws's guide to drawing birds is itself winged, soaring between a devotion not only to art but also to the lives, forms, and postures of the birds themselves. Here, artistic technique and the exquisite details of natural history intertwine, and drawing becomes the vehicle for seeing. As Laws writes, "To draw feathers, you must understand how feathers grow, overlap, and insert into the body. To create the body, you must have an understanding of the bird's skeletal structure. To pose this skeleton, you must be able to perceive the energy, intention, and life of the bird." This how-to guide will perfect the technique of serious arists but also, perhaps more importantly, it will provide guidance for those who insist they can't draw. Leading the mind and hand through a series of detailed exercises, Laws delivers what he promises: that "drawing birds opens you to the beauty of the world." An Audubon Book.
Описание: Created by the author and illustrator of the popular Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada, this set of habitat guides makes plant and animal identification fun and easy. The box set contains five user-friendly foldout guides and is small enough to tote along in a pocket, yet durable enough to weather abuse at the bottom of any backpack. The waterproof and tearproof foldout guides in the set display the plant and animal species commonly found in these San Francisco Bay Area habitats:
Beach and on the bay
Creek, river, and ponds
Grassy hill and field
Oak and pine woodland
NEW for this edition: backyard and garden birds
Artfully rendered and designed for convenient use outdoors, whether on a windy day at the beach or a rainy hike in a redwood forest, The Laws Pocket Guides are the perfect companion for any hike, any age group, and any outdoor adventure in the Bay Area.
Описание: With this durable, color-coded guide to the birds of Bay Area yards, parks, and gardens--and some time outdoors--you will soon know a towhee from a pewee, a phoebe from a chickadee, and when a dazzling flock of cedar waxwings lights nearby, you'll be ready to enjoy it. Courting, nesting, feeding, fledging, singing, shuffling, drilling, perching, soaring...these denizens of our everyday lives will bring beauty and fascination to many a moment.

Описание: Over 35,000 copies sold As a naturalist managing the field studies program at the California Academy of Sciences, John Muir Laws noticed that novice birders often distinguish birds by color and size rather than species. This inspired him to create Sierra Birds: A Hiker's Guide, a unique book that assumes no prior birding knowledge on the part of the reader. Color-coded keys eliminate the time-consuming frustration of thumbing randomly through a guide, and a cross-index is also included for more advanced birders. All this in a format that is simply organized, lightweight, and small enough to tuck inside a pocket. A first-rate naturalist, Laws is also an accomplished artist. His illustrations are lively, colorful, and accurate, and drawn to represent species in the manner in which one generally sees them in the field.
