I’m feeling sick and miserable so I bought myself a present!

It is the most beautiful book! I have wanted it for a while. It contains the full set of stunning artworks that J G Keulemans created for a book that was first published in the early 1870′s; “A History of the Birds of New Zealand” by Walter Buller - who has a bunch of native birds named after him including the beautiful Buller’s Shearwater. 

It also has a foreword by the lovely Mr Stephen Fry which is of course, a good read.

And check this out! The dust cover doubles as this gorgeous poster!

I’m feeling much better now.
