The Virginia Center for the Book’s Annual Members Project Bird Talk “took flight” on November 14, 2018, during our Annual Raucous Auction.
Auction guests got a gander at the first of the completed editions of this year-long project.
2018 Center for the Book’s Annual Member’s Project: Bird Talk
To celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, National Audubon Society, National Geographic, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Birdlife International – and now, book artists at the Virginia Center for the Book – have declared 2018 to be the Year of the Bird.
We have marked the avian anniversary in creative collaboration, consigning this year’s annual member project to producing a colorful, cacophony of a book featuring North American wild birds and their songs.
The content of the book is an assemblage of bird images and the text of their calls and songs, represented phonetically – e.g., Cheer, cheer! Caw! Whip poor Will! Chickadee-deedee!
A limited number of copies of Bird Talk are available for purchase, contact [email protected] for additional information.
