2018 Center for the Book’s Annual Member’s Project: Bird Talk
To celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, National Audubon Society, National Geographic, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Birdlife International – and now, book artists at the Virginia Center for the Book – have declared 2018 to be the Year of the Bird.
We will mark the avian anniversary in creative collaboration, consigning this year’s annual member project to producing a colorful, cacophony of a book featuring North American wild birds and their songs.
The content of the book will be an assemblage of bird images and the text of their calls and songs, represented phonetically – e.g., Cheer, cheer! Caw! Whip poor Will! Chickadee-deedee!
