Mark Cocker

Jonathan Cape

The special relationship that people – particularly in the UK – have with birds is the subject of this well researched and beautifully produced book. This is Birds Britannica (of which Mark Cocker was also a co-author) gone global.
Packed with fascinating information (did you know that former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is a pigeon fancier?), the quality of the text is matched by that of David Tipling's stunning photographs. This is not a book to be read from cover to cover, but browsed and returned to time and time again.
