Birds of Paradise - Gould and Elliot Description

Birds of Paradise - Gould and Elliot Free Download.

The Birds of Paradise are the most lusciously coloured and elegant family of birds. They are natives of Papua New Guinea and the Aro Islands. This screensaver contains 48 images from two of the most magnificent books of ornithological art produced in the 19th century : Daniel Elliot's A Monograph of the Birds of Paradise (1873), and John Gould's Monograph of the Birds of Paradise (1891-1898).

Elliot worked closely with renowned animal artist Joseph Wolf who drew the illustrations in Elliot's book. Gould's close associate, artist Richard Sharpe, completed Gould's work on the Birds of Paradise after Gould died. The dazzling hand-colored lithographs of both books are unequaled, even by today's modern printing techniques.
