David Sibley: The Art of Identification

Just as poetry conveys rich meaning in few words, field guide art provides key visual content in minimum space. Tracing his own artistic development through sketches and paintings, best-selling author David Allen Sibley shares the unique requirements and challenges of illustrating for field guides. A book signing of the revised The Sibley Guide to Birds (2014) and The Sibley Guide to Trees (2009) follows the lecture. Co-sponsored by the Essex County Ornithological Club.
