Ralph Steadman's Extinct Boids
When the renowned cartoonist Ralph Steadman was asked to produce a piece for a exhibition of bird art, he got slightly carried away - it did after all, make a nice change from politicians. He allowed his imagination to run wild, and an astonishing 100 paintings late, Ralph's Extinct Boids was born.
These remarkable pieces of art include Steadman's unique interpretations of well known birds such as the Great Auk and Dodo, along with less familiar members of the avian firmament such as the snail eating Coua and a handful of bizarre creations such as the Gob Swallow, the Nasty Tern and Needless Smut. All with a riot of colour and a slice of trademark Steadman humour.

The follow-up to the award-winning Extinct Boids, Ralph Steadman's Nextinction features more of the incredible art of cartoonist Ralph Steadman. This time the focus is not on the birds that are gone, but the ones that there's still time to save. A proportion of the proceeds from Ralph Steadman's Nextinction goes to BirdLife International, to help them prevent the Nextinction.
