Jim doesn't just see birds, he looks at them, so intensely that he understands them. Not just anatomically or behaviourally - he knows how they feel.

Jim Moir (the artist formerly known as Vic Reeves) delivers another volume of his exquisite paintings of British birds.

In 2019, Unbound published Birds, a small but perfectly formed volume of Jim's fast-growing collection of bird paintings. Compact enough to slip inside the pocket of a cagoule, it quickly became a bestseller and continues to delight everyone who enjoys looking at and learning about our beaked and feathered fellow travellers.

In April this year, Jim and his wife Nancy hosted a new show on Sky Arts – Painting Birds with Jim and Nancy Moir which got wonderful reviews and brought Jim's bird paintings to a whole new audience. A second series has been announced for Spring 2024 and although these books aren't official tie-ins, they are inspired the same generous spirit and are overflowing with Jim's wonderful paintings.

As Jim tells us: When I started painting birds I did them in an exaggerated style, almost like caricatures. But I've gradually come to realise I get a real kick out of making them as realistic as I can. And I think I'm getting better and better at painting them.

We think so too – and this volume of another hundred even better paintings is the proof.
