Based on the award-winning Buller's Birds of New Zealand: The Complete Work of JG Keulemans, this new accessible edition presents a superb selection of the classic nineteenth-century ornithological paintings, in exquisite colour reproduction. In 2012, the comprehensive, landmark publication Buller's Birds of New Zealand: The Complete Work of JG Keulemans presented all-new reproductions of JG Keulemans' definitive nineteenth-century images of New Zealand's native birds, from both editions and the subsequent supplement of A History of the Birds of New Zealand by Walter Buller. Selected Buller's Birds of New Zealand includes a superb selection of the choicest 80 artworks, reproduced in rich, luminous colour, along with the fascinating story of this internationally significant artist and his work. Like the complete edition, each painting is accompanied by up-to-date taxonomic information in English and te reo Maori. By popular demand, this accessible, affordable new edition presents a careful selection of the original, cherished masterpieces for new readers and existing fans alike.
Geoff Norman is a keen tramper and ecologist, who holds qualifications in science and environmental studies and has worked in publishing for over 25 years. Buller's Birds of New Zealand: The Complete Work of JG Keulemans was his first full-length book.
