America's Other Audubon is a new large-format album of little-known ornithological plates by an all but unknown artist named Genevieve Estelle Jones (1847-1879). Her illustrations were originally published as hand-colored lithographs in 1886, just 10 years after she first saw an exhibition of John James Audubon's astonishing lithographs (Birds of America) at the World's Fair in Philadelphia. more>>>
