New book on trogons, who is the artist?

Lynx has an announcement for a new book on trogons. Author is Forshaw, but who is the artist? The cover in their catalog looks like it could have been done by William T. Cooper. But the picture is too small to decipher the smaller text.

Unfortunately the description of the book on the Lynx Edicions website provides some old words about a work on Spanish Imperial Eagle(!):
http://www.hbw.com/lynx/en/lynx-edic...2-trogons.html
But, with the help of a magnifying glass, I believe the illustrator named in the catalogue is Albert Earl Gilbert. The examples of his work here don't greatly inspire:

I wonder if the publication of this book will mean that an alternative title by Collar & Allen will never appear? It's been listed on the WorldTwitch website for some time:
Nigel Collar & Richard Allen. Trogons and Quetzals. 240 pages. 40 colour plates. A&C Black. Forthcoming.

Thanks Richard, for your very helpful info. I think I'll wait with my potential order. I agree with you about those samples!
