Birds of Paradise
A Coloring Expedition
By Edwin Scholes and Tim Laman
Illustrated by Andrew Leach
From the authors of National Geographic's Birds of Paradise, Tim Laman and Edwin Scholes, and Cornell Lab illustrator, Andrew Leach, Birds of Paradise: A Cornell Lab Coloring Expedition, brings the stunning and amazing world of Birds of Paradise to birders and coloring enthusiasts everywhere.
Building on the adult coloring book sensation, and the worldwide attention of the Birds of Paradise book, video, and U.S. museum tour, the Cornell Lab created Birds of Paradise: A Cornell Lab Coloring Expedition to inspire and engage readers in the beauty and appreciation of birds in a fun and interactive way.
Birds of Paradise is more than a typical adult coloring book — it's like an "expedition" into the world of the Birds of Paradise and Papua New Guinea where they live with introductory content from the #1 world expert, Ornithologist Edwin Scholes, and 39 gorgeous color photos from Tim Laman from the expeditions. Perforated coloring pages in this upscale, intricately designed book, make it easy to color and display.
And as with all Cornell Lab Publishing Group books, a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of Birds of Paradise will go directly to Cornell Lab to support projects such as children’s educational and community programs.
