    One thought on “The Secret Birds”

    1. Tony Fitzpatrick is a Chicago treasure. Having become familiar with his art work through the many album (well, CD) covers he has done for Steve Earle, I was excited to see this book with many full color prints of greater size than allowed by the work I had seen. Works such as Chicago Night Birds (a prayer for Otis Clay), Blue Jay, and Bird for the Daughters of Juarez leap off the page and fascinate the eye and the brain.

    2. This is a beautiful book of artist Tony Fitzpatrick's bird collage-paintings and some of his writing. Great souvenir of a wonderful exhibit, with a lovely introduction by Helen MacDonald (H is for Hawk).

    3. Won this !! Awesome !! Will review once book is received. Still have not received pre-view copy as of 21 April, 2016.

    4. This is an entertaining book filled with Chicago banter and inspiring bird collages. A beautifully crafted collectible. Adored.
