dc.description.abstractThe pre-title-page calls this An Illustrated Fable. Birds largely given to complaining about each other take off together for paradise. On the way they learn that when they think of each other and take compassion, they have found their paradise. One of the fascinating points of the book is the use, sometimes, of (extra) arms and hands for birds. On me at least, this practice has a disquieting and alienating effect (e.g., on 13 and 21). The style of the illustrations is deliberately archaic, set, I would say, somewhere late in the nineteenth century. The two-page spread on 28-29 is typical of the strength and simplicity of this art work.en_US
