Ghosts of Gone Birds, the book is officially published today, documenting the first four exhibitions and the ideas behind the project. We joined the launch last night to celebrate the release and got a preview of the new book!

October 24th, 2013

The new book, titled Ghosts of Gone Birds: Resurrecting Lost Species Through Art, features work from over 180 artists and writers and is published by Bloomsbury. It is officially released in the UK today and is available via the publisher here, but is not due out in the US until March next year.

The Ghosts of Gone Birds captures and celebrates extinct bird species and raises awareness and funds for conservation through art. We first discovered Gone Birds during their Shoreditch show (featured here and here) nearly two years ago. It's been great to see the project grow and you can find out more about the Ghosts of Gone Birds on facebook.
