Delightful portraits of 40 champion breeds recognised by the Poultry Club of Great Britain. Bookseller Primped, preened and proud - a beauty parade of chickens supreme. Daily Telegraph The ultimate in poultry portraiture, this collection of photographs by Andrew Perris shows 40 of the world's most fammous breeds in all their primped, preened and prize-winning perfection... There is nothing fowl about this egg-cellent introduction to our feathered friends. Daily Express Experience gleaned in advertising photography lends Andrew Perris's portraits of champion chicken breeds a studied poise and superficial sheen that lifts them out of the world of the nugget and (almost) on to the catwalk. Time Out The photographs in the book are fantastic and the poetic descriptions, eloquently written by a poultry expert are instructive and repay careful reading... I used my strongest magnifying glass to scrutinise the beautiful birds illustrated in this beautiful book. It has been an honour and a pleasure to review it. -- Deborah Devonshire Spectator We see chickens in a completely new light. Yorkshire Gazette A ravishing new book. Sussex Life This Ugly Betty of the farming world has had a surprise makeover and is demanding to be adored. In a ravishing new book, the lowly farmyard fowl has decided to grab its moment in the spotlight with both feet and, well, appears to have rather enjoyed itself. Sussex Life The sort of book you'd buy for a friend as a joke and end up reading. Newcastle Journal
