Audobon’s Birds of America

When I went to check out the videos associated with The Lost Bird Project, I found this video which shows the sculptor looking at the pages from Audubon’s book for the first time.  What I found interesting was the description of how the book was made and what amazing art was included in the book itself.  While the pages are prints each print was colorized with watercolors by an artist.  This type of workmanship isn’t found in books today since we have modern printing procedures, so to see it in such a large format book must have truly been a treat for the sculptor.
