May 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The long-awaited third volume in the popular "Birdbook" series of anthologies is scheduled for Summer 2015 (originally scheduled for April, but publication has been a little delayed - full details to follow shortly). Birdbook III - Farmland, Heathland, Mountain, Moorland (compiled by Kirsten Irving and Jon Stone of Sidekick Books) features several scalpel cut-paper illustrations by Loïs Cordelia, including the cover image of the charismatic alchemist, Dr Fulminare, conjuring a flock of birds out of thin air.

A diverse, witty and quirky collection of poems about numerous British bird species of heathland and mountain habitats is accompanied by an equally diverse mix of black and white illustrations by many different artists, including also a few scissor-cut illustrations by Loïs' mother Erika Bülow-Osborne.
