Art & Design
Even those not given to bird watching may easily fall under the spell of the diminutive, hovering hummingbird—or this beguiling new series of hummingbird prints by Maine artist Josh Brill. Brill, who thinks of his Flora Fauna collection of prints as a “field guide of discovery,” has clearly been paying close attention to the small things that differentiate one species of hummingbird from another (he also has a mammal and canine series), and documenting his findings in handsomely stylized illustrative form. In addition to a brightly-hued bird graphic, each signed print bears the name of the bird species, as well as its associated bird call. Flora and fauna are more than merely an artistic device for Brill: he donates 1% of profits from sales of his prints to animal and environmental charities.
