"Having difficulty identifying a particular species of bird through her spotting scope, Carol E. Richards took a photograph through the lens to assist with her research. The resulting picture turned out to be far more than a tool for verification. It had a mood and visual content the artist was drawn to, and led to the creation of a series of beautiful, dream-like vignettes. 'Unlike some photographs of wildlife that are clear and provide answers', says Richards, 'these soft visuals raise questions. It was a surprising discovery; as I spied on these birds, I could see their charm and individuality' " (Publisher's blurb). Not everyone loves cats or dogs. But you're not human if you do not love birds. An absolute "must-have" title for Carol E. Richards and bird lovers/collectors. This copy is numbered in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original color print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on verso by Carol E. Richards. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 12 color plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant living American photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 159005377X. $70.00
