Additional Information

The Bird Book is a children's alphabet book by artist and educator, Brian D. Cohen, with rhyming couplets written by Holiday Eames. Created for their son, David, each letter of the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase, corresponds to the bird illustrated on each page. The description can be read aloud to especially inquisitive children, or be enjoyed by an adult reader alike. Originally hand-colored and printed letterpress, only 26 copies were made. Now gathered in book form for the first time, printed in four colors on beautiful recycled paper, these stunning prints will also appeal to adults interested in art books, small press books, printmaking, and birds. Their children and grandchildren will thank the parents and gift givers as well, for the birds in the book, and the accompanying couplets will open up a world of art and poetry that will become a family favorite.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

this exquisite book is an educational tool for children learning the alphabet as well as an exquisite art book for adults. The woodcuts are stunning. I have purchased three of them - one for each grandchild who are each under five. These are books that will be treasured through out their lives as they grow older as the bird images are utter works of art.
I read this book to a group of schoolchildren in Burlington, Vermont, and I was amazed at the response—the children were thoroughly engrossed and loved anticipating the next letter of the alphabet and searching for the "hidden letter" in each illustration. Just as the beautifully written couplets draw the listener into the language, the artwork is stunning, and grownups like the book perhaps more than the children do. I highly recommend the book to parents, educators, librarians. A great holiday gift and beautifully designed and printed with environmental sustainability in mind. A win-win for this reviewer!
This is simply a beautiful book. The details, colors, and texture of the images are striking, and the text to go with each is fitting. It is both a great book for children, as well as for adults to admire and enjoy. I gave it to my mother for her birthday! I highly recommend taking a look at it.
