diversity. Feathers is an intensely beautiful visual
taxonomy and a photographic love letter to this poetic feat of
evolution." --Brain Pickings
"Photographer Robert Clark became fascinated with the beauty and utility of bird feathers while on assignment for National Geographic in 2004. His mastery of the science, photographic possibilities, and 200-million-year history of the plume is evident in Feathers: Displays of Brilliant Plumage (Chronicle). The striking colors and gorgeous patterns represent a global avian fashion show." --Boston Globe
