Since its first appearance in July 2009, Matt’s ‘Bird of the Week’ feature for the Caught by the River website has quickly become a cult hit.
His pop-art watercolours are distinctive and enchanting, as are his innovative descrip- tions, which see great tits ‘bossing the other birds around’, the ‘playful yet shy buoyancy’ of bullfinches and the ‘improbable’ nature of the waxwing (‘like a computer-generated samurai finch’). Now, for the first, time his original drawings and descriptions are compiled in a beautiful volume. The perfect read for bird-lovers and art and design fans alike. To launch the book, The Social is honoured to be hosting an exhibition of Matt’s birds, this will be launching April 5th.
