In a new book out September 15, illustrator Ralph Steadman and filmmaker Ceri Levy team up again to put birds on display. As a follow-up to Extinct Boids, the new book Nextinction focuses on the birds that are still around, but barely—specifically the species on the IUCN Red List.
Steadman draws these birds (or "boids") in his distinct style (you've likely seen his collaborations with gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson), making up a few new species along the way. The book also includes descriptions of the birds and a couple snippets of Steadman and Levy's correspondence while producing the book. We've excerpted a sample of the book above.
