Chance to buy the original artwork from the definitive “Birds of Africa

November 2012. Martin Woodcock painted virtually all the colour plates for the seven-volume definitive work The Birds of Africa. Now you can buy some of the original plates from Birds of Africa, and help support some of the African Bird Club‘s conservation fund to support ornithological projects in Africa.

The Birds of Africa is the definitive seven-volume ornithological book of all known African species. It was written by Hilary Fry, Stuart Keith and Emil Urban, and Martin Woodcock painted almost all of the plates, which are now for sale.

You can view the paintings here.
