Spotting a little bird perched in a tree or taking flight into a blue sky is one of those perfect, fleeting moments that gives us pause in our bustling days. Birds of the Hedgerow, Field and Woodland revels in the quiet delight of these moments by pairing graceful descriptions of our best-loved birds alongside simple, yet stunning woodcuts. From meadow pipits to jays to the sedge warbler, this simple bird guide is a treasure trove of images. The bold black and white of the eighty-five woodcuts by Nelson perfectly complements the stark elegance of the text.

Birds of the Hedgerow, Field and Woodland is the third volume in Unicorn’s In Arcadia Series, which restores to print beautifully written, but long-forgotten, books about the British countryside. It is an enchanting addition, perfect for bird lovers and those who love beautiful books.
