Nextinction Birds in Trouble Synopsis

The Boids are back in town ... this book features more of the incredible art of cartoonist Ralph Steadman.  These are the 192 Critically Endangered birds on the IUCN Red List, species such as the Giant Ibis, the Kakapo, the Sumatran Ground-cuckoo and the iconic Spoon-billed Sandpiper - these, along with a number of classic Steadman creations such as the Unsociable Lapwing, are the NEARLY-EXTINCT BOIDS. Woids are again by author, conservationist and film-maker Ceri Levy. Together, Ceri and Ralph are THE GONZOVATIONISTS.

Nextinction Birds in Trouble Press Reviews

'Steadman's colourful, spiky illustrations of critically endangered birds ... a dazzling aviary of 'nearly extinct boids. Save them all and make the ink-spattered Steadboid very happy.' Saga

'Hatched from the minds of gonzo cartoonist Ralph Steadman and writer-filmmaker Ceri Levy, Nextinction is a visual plea for conservation efforts, depicting nearly 200 birds facing an irrevocable fate: extinction. Levy's humorous but educational text accompanies a spectacle of colorful plumage rendered with Steadman's unique illustrative style, right down to those trademark ink blotches.' Boston Globe

'Steadman has a talent for birds, and his scratchy, ink-splattered style works wonders with beaks and feathers. The text is informative and wildly eccentric by turns.' New Statesman
