Unique and quirky watercolours and descriptions of 52 beloved British birds from the Banksy of the bird world

In this beautiful, collectible new volume, street artist Matt Sewell offers his own unique take on 52 of our favourite British garden birds.

Since its first appearance in July 2009, Matt's 'Bird of the Week' feature for the Caught by the River website has quickly become a cult hit. His pop-art watercolours are distinctive and enchanting, as are his innovative descriptions, which see great tits 'bossing the other birds around', the 'playful yet shy buoyancy' of bullfinches and the 'improbable' nature of the waxwing ('like a computer-generated samurai finch').

With 52 birds, one for each week of the year, this delightful gift book will appeal to birders, children and adults, and art and design fans alike.
