Birds Of Paradise

We have just begun our next project, working with the Folio Society to create a facsimile of Sharps Birds of Paradise from the Rylands collection.

The 2 large volumes contain a number of beautiful hand painted plates of birds, created between 1891 -98. The whole of the volumes will be photographed using the P65+ back for the detailed colour plates, and the lesser P25+ for the text, which is to be re set for the facsimile.  When we know the date of publication, we will post.
