  • Audubon, John James
  • Main Fleurie
  • Large 4to
  • Cloth Box
  • As New

Description

Edited and introduced by Ben Forkner, an authority on the life and writings of Audubon and a founding member of the Audubon Scientific Committee in France. The portfolio is composed of 244 loose pages. 48 illustrations with a text and additional 48 full page illustrations. Limited to 2265 copies on Main Fleurie paper, numbered 236 to 2500 presented in a olive green cloth-bound box. The texts from Audubon himself are chosen first to illustrate his approach of drawing in "My Style of Drawing Birds," and his daily life, through letters to his wife, Lucy, and one to John Bachmann, during his trips to Florida, to the Gulf of Mexico and to Labrador, while making his famous Birds of America. Printed on Main Fleurie paper made from new textile fibre, manufactured by Arches in the Vosges, specially for the book. Due to the slow cylinder rotation, the paper has a felt-like softness, very close to handmade paper. No 800 and 445.
