Nom De Plume

book cover image The Extraordinary Beauty of Birds

With a name like Peck, you almost have to be an expert on birds. Mark Peck, an ornithological expert at the Royal Ontario Museum, provides detailed and informative text to go along with stunning photographs.

In The Extraordinary Beauty of Birds, the photographs and text both inspire. From nest to egg to feather, photographer Deborah Samuel's images are an exercise in seeing.

Accompanying the images are scientific descriptions of Samuel's subjects, written by Mark Peck, an ornithological expert at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
