This book has received an Award of Excellence from the 2001 Southern Books Competition. "You could not find a lovelier title page spread than that in Of Birds and Texas. The sensitive calligraphy and the well-designed two-column text pages support the stunning bird prints." Congratulations to the authors, designer Ellen McKie and the University of Texas Press.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most gorgeous books you'll come across--every aspect is beautifully thought out. The bird paintings by the Gentlings are breathtaking--and often offer a little sly humor in their composition. Treat yourself or another bird lover.

The book arrived promptly, and in excellent shape. Thanks so much for obtaining a copy for me. I knew the Gentling brothers and have a couple of their prints but had never seen the entire collection. This book does an excellent job of presenting their material with plenty of text to get the flavor of what kind of artists they were. The reproductions are terrific and I am very pleased with the purchase. Thank you. bill moyer, dallas
