Chickens, Ducks and Geese Hardback
Part of the National Trust Art & Illustration series
Another collection of exquisite watercolour paintings from well-loved artist Madeleine Floyd.
In this follow-up to her bestselling book Birdsong, she turns her attention to the world of chickens, ducks and geese - some familiar, some less so.
It includes a huge variety of breeds, both domestic and wild, from the statuesque Buff Orpington chicken to the magnificent Faverolle, from splendid mallards to the slightly comical Indian Runners, the familiar large white farmyard goose, and elegant swans.
Each painting is accompanied by insightful, whimsical text that pinpoints what the artist loves about these wonderful creatures.
The perfect present, this beautiful book is ideal for bird lovers, keepers of domestic fowl and fans of Madeleine Floyd alike.
