Roseate Spoonill Framed Print


Platalea ajaja

The flamboyant Roseate Spoonbill almost looks like it just walked out of Alice in Wonderland, with its bright pink feathers, red eye staring out from a partly bald head, and giant spoon-shaped bill. This beautiful creature is 1 of 6 species of spoonbills in the world and the only one found in America. The original image dates back to the 18th century, from the book "The Birds of America" by ornithologist and painter John James Audubon. It features life-sized watercolours of a total of 435 North American birds and is one of the most celebrated books of natural history. This image has since been digitally restored to its former glory. 

Part of the "Birds of America" collection.

This print is created using a combination of lithographic and photocrom printing processes which allow for the restoration of vintage archives, whilst adding colour, depicting the intricate beauty and details of this vibrant and unique bird.
