Ralph Steadman's Extinct Boids
Ralph Steadman & Ceri Levy
Featuring cartoons of both extinct and fanciful birds from the rich imagination of Ralph Steadman. Based on an impressive collection first shown at the Ghosts of Gone Birds exhibition, the large format book features full colour reproductions of the images as well as a dialogue between Ralph Steadman and curator of the exhibition, film-maker Ceri Levy.
When the renowned cartoonist Ralph Steadman was asked to produce a piece for a recent exhibition of bird art, he got slightly carried away - it did, after all, make a nice change from politicians. He allowed his imagination to run wild and, an astonishing 100 paintings later, Ralph's Extinct Boids was born ...These remarkable pieces of art include Steadman's unique interpretations of well-known birds such as the Great Auk and Dodo, along with less familiar members of the avian firmament - Snail-eating Coua, for example - and a handful of bizarre creations such as the Gob Swallow, the Nasty Tern and Needless Smut, all with a riot of colour and a slice of trademark Steadman humour. 240 pages.
