9781742378299: Nest: The Art of Birds
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Part natural history, part folklore, part exploration of art and aesthetics, part memoir, Nest is a beautiful book that will appeal to bird lovers, readers of literature and art lovers alike. It's the perfect gift for your friend or yourself.

We tend to take birds for granted, in the landscape or in our neighbourhoods. The presence of birds communicates the health of a place. When they're gone, it's as though there's a hole in the sky, in the air, an absence of beauty and grace. One our avian friend s most often overlooked features are their homes, their nests. And what are nests if not art created by nature? If a nest is not art, how can we account for those exquisite, painstakingly constructed creations that are decorated, or woven through with feathers, or studded with objects of a particular colour or sheen? Nest reveals both the art and mystery found in nature and celebrates them with lyricism, insight and great affection.

Revue de presse :

Nest, Burke writes, is a word that 'conjures fundamental notions of home, family, privacy, shelter and rest.' Her book alights intelligently and compassionately on each of these ideas, and between its pages the reader is given pause to gaze up at the sky and marvel at the pelicans or sparrows flying overhead. --Sydney Morning Herald
