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!
