Bronx Boids

I have always loved the funny little rhyme:
"toity poiple boids asittin on d'koib a'choipin 'n a'boipin 'n eatin' doity woims"
which - should you need a translation is::
"thirty purple birds a sitting on the kerb a'chirping and a'burping and eating dirty worms"

Each book has an original and therefore
individual 'boid' on the cover and is fastened
with a handtwisted suede cord


The book is a double concertina, fixed to the
centre section of the wrap around cover

The book measures 12.5cm high x 7cm wide
Fully extended, the book measures 51.5cm

 

The illustration (by Cecilia) is inkjet printed onto Arches HP watercolour paper
 

Birds are handpainted using a mixture of watercolour, gouache and mica powder
 

Some windows etc. are gold foiled

As is the egg!
Price A$100, plus postage & packing in Australia
