A Creative Life

America’s Other Audubon by Joy Kiser contains gorgeous hand colored drawings of the nests and eggs of the birds of Ohio. These stunning prints were produced in the late 1800s by Genevieve Jones, a young woman from Circleville, Ohio. The drawings were influenced by the work of John James Audubon, and they are said to rival any of his work for their beauty and scientific accuracy.

The book is completely enthralling. Each time I open it, I find something new and beautiful. If you have a birdwatcher or lover of the natural sciences on your Christmas shopping list, this book would take a place of honor under the tree.
