    As someone who is learning to paint birds, I was very grateful and excited for the existence of this little book, which is made up of letters from Fuertes to Sutton as well as Sutton's notes and memories. It is wonderful both because it provides incite into how Fuertes worked and because it shows both artists' enthusiasm for bird painting and their absolute delight in being able to share their thoughts and paintings with each other. Definitely a must-read for bird and wildlife artists.
