A Sparrow’s Life’s as Sweet as Ours is a collection based on the Bird of the Month column in The Oldie John McEwen’s  text is written with charm and concision, spiced with poetry as well as facts and stories, with anecdotes  to inform and, above all, entertain. Much -loved painter and printmaker Carry Akroyd presents a sequence of her small screenprints, full of variety and colour, that illustrate British birds in all four seasons of the year. These stunning prints give full rein to her extensive knowledge of the British landscape, and Carry’s deft capturing of each bird’s characteristics shine out. This is a celebration of a uniquely beautiful book.
