Exquisite Bird Illustrations by Fanny Shorter

Delightful life-size prints of the world's smallest birds by a UK artist.

I’ve temporarily put aside my horse fetish to admire Fanny Shorter’s irresistible life-size prints of tiny, tiny birds. Fanny Shorter graduated from Brighton University and is now based in Holborn, London at the Cockpit Arts Studios, a creative business incubator for artists.¬†Her lovely drawings, shown here, feature many creatures, including¬†the smallest, the Bee Hummingbird, at just 5.5 cm long.

Original Shorter silkscreen prints are available here for £60 each. Scroll down for information about a set of reproductions for $37.

Fanny’s bird prints are available in a ten-card set for $37 through NYC outlet Lin Morris. All are printed on 10cm x 15cm / 5.9″ x 3.9″ cards and each with a blank inside–perfect for framing!
