WOW Nov. 3 2009
By W. Noble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I don't have the book in my hands yet (my daughter just sent me a link to Zuckerman's astonishing website - go see both the photographs and his film). I'm a lifelong ornithologist and bibliophile, and I've never seen anything like this man's work. Were they, indeed, photos or were they a whole new kind of superrealistic, microscopically detailed paintings? I couldn't tell. The sense of astonishment with this work is not just the vividness of the white backgrounds that isolate the subjects; it's equally, again and again, the startling perspectives on the bird's body and plumage. With each picture, you see birds as you have never seen them before.

It's not easy to do genuinely original work is a field already so saturated. This man has done it.

Brilliant design & photography Dec 2 2009
By ashton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The quality of this book is absolutely astounding.
The photography is superb; incredible detail, color, interesting compositions. Even though the photographs are on a completely white background they have a crispness, and vibrance due to the careful lighting.
The page design is excellent, wonderful contrast of sizes, shapes, color and great use of the white space.
Oh, and the birds? Beautiful. A reminder of how amazing natural creatures are, how detailed the plumage, the delicacy of color, the silkiness of black feathered birds, and then the quirky details of theirs beaks, claws or other amazing details the photographer has picked out to show us.
A very impressive project, beautifully executed.

Fantastic Aug. 4 2013
By Miss April - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The imagery in this book is so amazing! I bought the book so that I could take some of the photos and frame them in a large grouping. I got the idea from Houzz.com. It is going to be fabulous! I received the book after only three days of ordering and can't wait to get the frames now to hang the pics up!!

Was expecting photos, not graphic art. June 22 2010
By Enchanted Tiki Room - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Hundreds of pages of beautiful "photos" of birds on white backgrounds. From the other comments I was expecting photographs with incredible detail. Instead they look like photos that were edited in Photoshop with the watercolor and pencil effects. As photographs they are somewhat flat, 2D, and suffer from artifice. However, if you like the drawings in the birding books you'll love Bird, because that's exactly what you get. You can see what the images look like on the Amazon page for the book, in the section labeled "Take a Closer Look: Selected Photographs from Bird." They are beautiful, they just aren't photographic in appearance.

BIRD-Incredible!!! Feb. 8 2010
By Kelly Munoz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An absolutely amazing book of bird photography. A true art masterpiece of photography. It is a "must have" and "must see" experience. I have gone through this book multiple times and am still gasping. I have let everyone I know about this incredible book and those who have "experienced" it have the same reaction. WOW!!
