The Professional / Le Mot Juste

from The Life of Birds, by Quentin Blake

This collection of nearly 60 drawings of birds in human guise were produced using watercolour pencils. Published simultaneously by Doubleday (in the UK) and, as Nous les Oiseaux, by Gallimard (France) in 2005.

Quentin subsequently continued the series, from which he produced three limited edition prints for the Royal Academy Suumer Show in 2012.
