Just published: Living on the Edge, Black Bird/White Bird at the Cliffs, a new book based on April Vollmer’s recent bird photography.
Living on the Edge is a collection of photographs of black and white birds taken along the northern California Pacific shore during the winter of 2020. The white birds are great egrets and snowy egrets, the black birds are crows and ravens. These are all common birds, managing along a thin edge of possibility. They are common because they are so adaptable, living along the cliffs at the edge of the ocean, and at the margins of human activity. They are experts at calculating exactly how much energy to spend avoiding close contact with humans.
Happy to report that my 12 x 1 2 inch woodcut and mixed media work from 2006, “Kosha” graces the cover of a new book “Chaos and Dynamical Systems,” Princeton University Press, by David Feldman, an old friend who now teaches physics and mathematics. https://press.princeton.edu/titles/13469.html
Very happy to have my work illustrate his writing.
