More information About the book – Tony Ladd, an experienced graphic designer and wildlife artist, has produced a truly remarkable publication with all the hallmarks of a Victorian Journal from the olden days. Through thousands of hours research and visits to the great natural history museums of Great Britain he has presented the story of the early naturalist collectors in a beautiful and artistic fashion. Early chapters cover the topic of how birds’ eggs are formed in the body and there are also detailed descriptions of how the wonderful diversity of eggshell patterns are applied to the surface. Raptors, the first in a series of nine volumes, covers all of the British’ breeding birds of prey with detailed analysis of the birds’ breeding behaviour. There are full page plates for each species showing the variety of egg-patterning and colours found in each species. All eggs are shown as life-size and with Tony’s reprographic expertise, the colour reproduction and quality of all the images is outstanding. The limited number of 100 ‘Collector’s Editions’ and 400 standard copies will undoubtedly become unique collectors pieces as this stunning book is a magnificent work of art.
