Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The striking images in Extraordinary Chickens showed that "the world of chickens is a world of wonders" (New York Times Book Review). Now, in a follow-up to the extraordinarily successful first book from Stephen Green-Armytage, the photographer presents 61 breeds and 5 species, including 14 breeds not previously included in the first book, a new series of chicken couples, and virtually all new images. Capturing with his camera chickens of all sizes, shapes, and colors, he illuminates gorgeous feather patterns worthy of French fabric designers, as well as elaborate wattles, elegant crests, and many other details. Through his exquisite photographs, he captures the surprising and expressive personality of these amazing creatures. Included are breeds developed in Japan, Malaysia, Britain, France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Poland, Australia, South America, Canada, the United States, and elsewhere. For breeders and enthusiasts, this volume will be a treasure they must own; for others it will be a revelation, worth having for the sheer enjoyment of the beautiful photographs and the wonderful birds they portray.

Synopsis:

Flaunting their high-fashion plumage, chickens strut and pose like runway models for photographer Ernest Goh. These birds, with their all-too-human expressions, are both funny and poignant, as if they are commenting on our own foibles. From the proud Serama of Malaysia to the delightfully humorous Silkie, Gohandrsquo;s portraits, shot on location throughout the world, convey not only the beauty and diversity of various breeds, but also capture the personality of each fowl. For sheer variety in size, color, feathering, and behavior, nothing beats the humble chicken, and no other book
captures this surprising phenomenon as well as the hilarious Chickens.

Synopsis:

'

From the author of Extraordinary Chickens comes the latest extraordinary animal--the pig. One of the most intelligent animals on earth, the pig is a fascinating creature with an abundance of personality. Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage captures these lively and energetic animals as they play and forage on the farm, prance around in the show ring, or strut across a studio backdrop. 

Extraordinary Pigs displays an enormous variety of swine, 38 in total, including tiny Kunekunes, wrinkled Meishans, spotted Gloucester Old Spots, curly-coated Mangalitzas, wild boars, and some miniatures, which are highly prized as pets. Breeds from around the world are featured here--from the United States, England, Wales, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, New Zealand, China, Vietnam, Africa, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
