The artwork is detailed, clear, and beautifully printed. It includes everything from small details of anatomy to full skeletons. The text is informative without being dauntingly scientific. Together they describe the fascinating variety to be found in birds around the world.
I would be delighted with this book even if I weren't looking for resources as an artist. It's a beautifully crafted look into avian form and function.
If you are looking for the best bird anatomy book, this probably is not it. I would recommend _Manual of Ornithology: Avian Structure and Function_ by Noble S. Proctor & Patrick J. Lynch.

..... It’s stunning!
Fascinating views of birds as you don’t usually see them.
The illustrations are superb, great detail, form & texture (and the originals must be even better) lovingly crafted by gifted hand and eye!
You can truly appreciate ‘a life’s work’ and that it was a long time in the making, put together with a deep passion for the subject - with considerable effort and many focussed hours, I would say...
The stripping of deceased birds via dissection, to investigate their anatomy. The boiling of bones to allow for full skeletal reconstruction, an art in itself, and the production of detailed studies, mostly in pencil, of the full process and stages thereof.
Giving you, up close and personal observations you just don’t get - unless you go to these measures yourself (maybe)
Highly recommended if you like art, birds, anatomy, quality illustrations and such...
For me: ***An inspirational reference to be looked at regularly***
