Vintage Birdsong

The birds have returned to our trees this week, so here's an "ode" to one of the great bird men: John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an American artist, well known for his beautiful drawings and paintings of birds, mammals, plants, and other subjects from nature. Shown here are some of his original works from a 1937 book, and cards crafted from those pages which were damaged, perfect for birthdays, Mother's and Father's Day. Celebrate the coming of Spring!
