  • Vivants et en mouvement, et de toutes les couleursJohn Gould 1804 1881 fut sans conteste l artiste ornithologique le plus prolifique du XIX me si cle, et le seul rival de John James Audubon en termes d ambition et de qualit Gould partageait l enthousiasme romantique de son temps pour les sp cimens d oiseaux, ainsi que l envie de les recenser Il combina sa passion de l histoire naturelle avec ses remarquables talents de scientifique, d artiste et d entrepreneur S appuyant sur ces aptitudes, il se lan a dans une s rie de projets qui allaient faire de lui le plus grand diteur d illustrations ornithologiques de l Angleterre victorienne Sa carri re sans quivalent s tendit sur cinq d cennies, au cours desquelles il r alisa une s rie d ouvrages d peignant des oiseaux en provenance de toute la plan te.Les superbes illustrations publi es par Gould dans Monographies sur les Ramphastidae, ou dans Famille de toucans, sont g n ralement consid r es comme ses r alisations les plus fortes et les plus r ussies La tr s large palette de couleurs du noir luisant aux rouge et orange vifs concourent cr er un ensemble particuli rement vivant.Repr sent s dans des d cors simples, les oiseaux semblent sortir de la page, comme grandeur nature les toucans de Gould y sont montr s comme des cr atures vivantes plus que comme des repr sentations en deux dimensions L id e de Toucans fut inspir e Gould lorsqu il travaillait son ouvrage Oiseaux d Europe, et qu il se fascina pour la collection de toucans d un coll gue ornithologue Il fit plusieurs voyages pour visiter des mus es d Europe centrale et pour y rassembler de la documentation pour Toucans Apr s la publication de la premi re dition du livre, il redessina certaines des planches et ajouta 20 nouveaux oiseaux la seconde dition revue et augment e Tous sont reproduits ici.

    • Superbe livre on peut faire des encadrements avec les feuilles de chaque toucan . Rare des livres aussi beaux. Je le recommande à tous.


    • A collection of gorgeous color prints of John Gould's representations of toucans and related birds. The prints are extremely large and on very fine, thick paper. And there are quite a lot of them. Unless you are an ornithologist, you probably have no idea how many varieties of toucan there are in the world. It's a lot. And they are mind-blowingly beautiful. You could frame some of these babies and have some lovely and very inexpensive art.Taschen should be congratulated on its continued aw [...]


    • The product arrived soon and in excellent conditions. Difficult to find in our country, this stuff is essential for those who loves to collect bird pictures. It Worth


    • I saw this collection on the coffee table in the lobby of a hotel in Miami Beach. The cover of the box intrigued me & while I waited for companions started to go thru it. We stayed at the hotel for 5 days & I kept going back to that book in the lobby. Did a search & knew I would have to order the book.


    • The quality of these prints is amazing. I know some people would be horrified to think of breaking up the set to frame some, but that's exactly what I'm going to do. That way I'll be able to look at them all the time. The book that's included is also very interesting; I really didn't know much about toucans before. The set is just an incredible bargain; I'm so glad I bought it.


    • Beautiful prints. I would have liked it better if they were bound into book form; it was not clear that they would be loose prints. This would be ideal for someone who wanted to frame some; personally, I would hate to break up the set.
