'A superb piece of work, packaged and produced with typically lofty Collins standards. It really does look the part, having been so thoughtfully put together, and it oozes authority and class. It is a hugely impressive book ... The plates are a joy to behold. Little space is spared, with each packed to the rafters with depictions of every species covered - in many cases twice, where sexes differ sufficiently to merit recognition. They feel busy yet not chaotic; each has been carefully constructed so as not to inhibit identification of the species shown, nor detract from their overall impact ' Josh Jones, Bird Guides Praise for Norman Arlott '[Arlott's paintings] are not only accurate (which is the most important thing), but I find them very attractive as well. . . . I would highly recommend' Grant McCreary, Birder's Library 'A real treasure. . . . Simple and simply beautiful.' Robert Mortenson, Idaho Birding blog 'A must for the travelling birder.' BBC Wildlife
