The Feather Book of Dionisio Minaggio

The Feather Book is a collection of illustrations made completely of bird feathers - with a few added extras. The majority of the pictures represent the birds of Lombardy - the area of Italy around Milan. They are complete with beaks and claws and, in a few cases, you can also see the skin of the head underneath the feathers. They may, in fact, represent the oldest collection of bird feathers - as bird specimens - in existence.
