About the Author
Since 1987, when he published the first edition of his seminal Extinct Birds, Errol Fuller has been the world's number one authority on extinct birds. An author and artist, Fuller's many titles include a breathtaking monograph on The Great Auk (2000) and Dodo - From Extinction To Icon (2002). His last book was a stunning review of the Birds of Paradise, co-authored with Sir David Attenborough.
