A Collaborative Art Book
A Passion for Wildlife and Conservation
The book, LOSING ALTITUDE, began as a dream to inspire in others a passion for wildlife and the conservation of endangered species and evolved into a collaborative effort between artists worldwide. The book was funded through KICKSTARTER and printed with exquisite quality by the ART BOOKBINDERY.
Birds are some of the most beautiful and interesting animals in the world. They live on every continent, and over the ages they have developed all kinds of interesting adaptations to life in all those different places. With such a huge variety of species, shapes, plumages, and colors, birds have inspired artists from the world over.
This art book brings together more than 45 artists from around the globe to illustrate threatened and endangered birds ranging from the little O’ahu ‘Elepaio and tiny Short-Crested Coquette to the magnificent Great Green Parrot and the mighty Javan Hawk-Eagle.
About the Owner
Arras Wiedorn, author, artist and owner of the micro publisher, Endangered Art Books, is a native of Severna Park, Maryland, with a degree in zoology from WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY. She has worked as a husbandry specialist and animal trainer, and is currently a graduate student at TEXAS A&M CORPUS CHRISTI. Arras has had a passion for animals since she was a small child, and is especially interested in birds and conservation ecology.
Arras advocates the work of many bird conservation organizations including BIRDLIFE INTERNATIONAL.
”I thought it would be great to use art books to teach people about species that they had never heard of, or perhaps misheard of,” Wiedorn explained. “Maybe, that way, people will start to think about how we can conserve those animals.”
