Review

"We will never know first hand what those extinct birds looked or sounded like but here they are within the pages of this beautiful boxed set.' New Zealand Herald, December 2012 'Our national birds fly off every page as exquisite and bright and alive as the artist intended. Each painting and original 19th-century caption by Buller gets plenty of visual oxygen in the form of its own double-page spread. Excellent modern add-ons include each birds name in Maori, and a foreword by Stephen Fry (who calls the kakapo an ""utterly endearing, fat nocturnal parrot"").' North & South, December 2012
