Birds of America
The Audubon Society has launched a big beautiful new site dedicated to John James Audubon's original "Birds of America" prints. The presentation is luscious, and very high-res versions of the art are available for download. I actually had a bit of a hard time getting some of the files to work, but that could really just as easily be my own technological ineptitude as anything going on with the site. Here are just a few samples of the copious beauty that's in store for you if you bop over there. Like much historical art that's been widely popularized down through the ages, it can be hard to remember just how amazing these images really are. Until you do.
