Another one from Shirihai which will likely be a major reference for Palearctic birders (not only Western):
Geographical Variation in Palearctic Birds: Passerines

The publishing year might be interesting, which is of course not certainly known as with all future book projects by Shirihai.

As others have noted, he clearly intends to live a very long time judging by his projects!

He sure tends to disperse over many projects (most or all much needed mega projects); but their completion is not in doubt as he associates with people like Kees Roselaar as in the case of the present work. I'm expecting a great reference work, but wouldn't put any money on a publishing date...

Birds of Brazil (Zimmer & Whittaker, Princeton) is now being advertised as available from 25 April 2019 here.
This is a most needed title, and the plates (by Eduardo Brettas) I've seen up to know seem to finally make justice to this amazing country's avifauna. Strangely, in NHBS, the "look inside" function for this book shows the Van Perlo illustrated checklist instead of being blank.
Some nice samples of plates from Brettas blog:
plate 15: Amazonian parrots - Pionites & Graydidacalus (and the same plate in progress)
Aratingas, Parakeets
plate 7: Miscellaneous crakes
plate 8b: Amazonian/Guianan Pyrrhuras
Coots and Gallinules
plate 2: Gallinules
plate 4: Medium-large rails 1 and Medium-large rails 2

If I'm allowed a minor criticism, I think putting extreme vagrants together with regular species on the same plate (as in the case of Corncrake on plate 7, linked above) isn't the most practical solution; putting all extreme vagrants on a few plates at the end would have been more useful from the point of view of field usage. But perhaps they'll do that in the final book (re-arranging digitally the plates?).
In any case it looks like a great work (especially if in 2 volumes) and one I'd like to put my hands on sooner than later...!

Size of the final product will also have something to do with the usability

Indeed.
From the above posted link:

Birds of Brazil
Kevin Zimmer & Andrew Whittaker
Available from 25 April 2019. According to Robert Kirk, senior editor at Princeton University Press, this book will likely be in two volumes: a large reference with detailed text and maps; and a smaller field guide with short texts, maps and about 190 colour plates.

In early November 2017 Robert Kirk, senior editor at Princeton University Press, stated this book is due in Spring 2019.
