'Lines for Birds is the result of a rich collaboration between two distinguished artists, both long fascinated by nature's beauty and power.
'Containing lush images by acclaimed painter John Wolseley and words by award-winning poet Barry Hill, this dazzling book weaves together a conversation between two venerable artists who, in a world of endangered nature, celebrate joy.
'This remarkable collection captures the very essence of Bird - its energy, inquisitiveness and daring - and is proof that these creatures suggest new ways of telling stories about the Earth.
'The book follows the flight paths and habitats of birds, from the Victorian Mallee to the forests of South East Asia, to Japan and the South of France.
'Lines for Birds is not only a beautiful piece of art, but is essential reading for lovers of poetry, visual arts and natural history.' (From the publisher's website.)
