Last year we hosted a beautiful exhibition of birds from Matt Sewell and i’m delighted to say that Matt is back!
To celebrate the launch of his new book, which there is more info about below, Matt has printed a selection of song birds for the upstairs bar.
Our Songbirds – A Songbird For Every Week Of The Year
By Matt Sewell
In this beautiful follow-up to 2012’s hit, Our Garden Birds, street artist Matt Sewell offers more watercolours and quirky descriptions of British songbirds.
In Matt’s world, the peewit sings the blues, and the bittern fills his neck ‘like a tweed pair of bellows’. Distinctive and enchanting, with a songbird for each week of the year, this delightful gift book will appeal to birders, children and adults, and art and design fans alike.
With a Foreword by Charlatans’ lead singer (and keen birdwatcher) Tim Burgess
