Egg and nest.

Egg and nest. Rosamond Purcell.
Egg and nest.

Cambridge MA: Harvard University Press, 2008. Quarto, dustwrapper, colour photographs.

Purcell's photographs capture the intricacy of nests and the aesthetic perfection of bird eggs. Mining the ornithological treasures of the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology, Purcell produces pictures as lovely and various as the artifacts she photographs. Alongside Purell's photographs, Linnea Hall and Rene Corado offer an engaging history of egg collecting, the provenance of the specimens in the photographs, and the biology, conservation, and ecology of the birds that produced them.
