Objet d'art - The shorebirds of Point Reyes and their eggs.

I made this book that's not a book in response to the fabulous art books on display at the Codex symposium.

I'm not sure where the idea came from but I've always been drawn to birds' eggs. And Point Reyes is a captivating place - with the added possibility that Sir Francis Drake anchored in the bay.

Inside there are egg reproductions of the featured birds, and a reproduction of an old map of the San Francisco Bay showing the huge wetlands, now reduced by over 90%.

WITH APOLOGIES TO ANDY WARHOHL

I feel really bad about this, but what with Warhol prints going for billions, his style seemed appropriate to the 2014 Christmas "paintings".

I used Photoshop to make screens, and Illustrator to simulate screen printing. In some cases (e.g. Marius "Che" Cannard) it's a straightforward steal, in others it is a collaboration.
