Synopsis

The Magical Land of Birdaylia by Anne Randles

Birdaylia started out as a series of black and white lino cuts, each bird with its challenging name and unique presence. A poetic story developed for each character which explains the reason for their evolvement. Each bird has a purpose and a love of life no matter how unusual their features. From Bollywooloom to Wil, Wal, Wen, they are arranged in alphabetical order and their names require careful perusal and pronunciation. It became clear that colour would add to their presence on the page and bring more joy into their lives as well as those who wish to meet hem.
