I don't know what's happened to this title but so far, there is no revised date for publication that I can find?

Maybe you should write to Per Alström and asked him what happened to this book project. AFAIK this book was first announced in 2003 but was never published.

Never happened. But it did in fact morph into this:

Larks of the World by Paul Donald and Per Alström
Illustrated by Faansie Peacock and Bill Zetterström

which is close to completion. The plates are sensational ...

This publishes in November next year.

Hi Jim,

I would be curious to know if you could tell us anything about Birds of Brazil by Zimmer or Birds of Argentina by Pearman. Are both still scheduled for publication?

Thanks Melanie,
I'd have thought it would get more pre publication, promotion than this though, non of my usual book suppliers have any mention of it.

Birds of Argentina - this is being wrapped up now. The plates are being laid out. It's down to publish end of next year. I know it's been pushed back and back (for at least as long as I've worked for Bloomsbury, which stands at 16 years!) but this time it really is coming out.

Birds of Brazil - this one is actually a Princeton-originated title.

Thanks, Jim

Indeed it will be excellent to finally see this work finished. Can you provide any more information about the final format - one volume or two?

It'll be good to see Faansie Peacock's consummate artwork reaching a wider audience. It makes me hope that he might just be persuaded to revisit his superbly illustrated, uniquely well-designed and extraordinarily informative guide to South Africa's waders so it could be revised and adapted for European/American readers. In my view in a crowded field, it's by far the best book on waders available today. His book on South African LBJs bodes well for his illustrations in the forthcoming guide.

Google Books (https://books.google.com/books/about...d=JZ0ZQwAACAAJ shows it as a two-volume set due July 23, 2020. So later is more plausible?

"Uplands and Birds" by Ian Newton.

Another interesting sounding (to me anyway) New Naturalist due for publication in May next year, though no information other than title and author so far.

I bumped into one of the artists for the Brazil book recently. It sounds like it is still some way off.

While speaking of Brazil books has anyone heard more about Bret Whitney’s Brazil book? I’ve not heard much about it in some time.

After seeing some plates, I can only agree! And Faansies and Bill's plates work extremely well together! Really look forward to this publication!
