Light and Shadow Publishing & Illustrating proudly announces the initial book release of Paul Dudley Bishop’s art book, The Florida Years, this last month on June 13th, 2015 in Petersburg, VA at the River Street Arts Fest.
The artwork features Audubonesque bird art from his years as a printmaker and bird artist in Florida, years when he sold thousands of his etchings and prints of Florida birds up and down the Southern East Coast. Prints featured in the book are examples of some of his work from those years. The book includes autobiographical information along with biological and environmental information about the Florida birds that are included in the book.
