Tree Sparrow Photo Published in Italian Bird Book.

One of my bird photos has just been published in an Italian bird book.

Tree Sparrow, Passer montanus, in the Rain at The Butterfly House, Sheffield

Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus) in the rain at The Butterfly House, Sheffield.

The book is Monitoraggio Dell' Avifauna Umbra (2000-2005) which is a 390 page

A4 size book written completely in Italian and full of interesting graphs and diagrams.

Authors: Francesco Velatta, Giuseppina Lombardi, Umberto Sergiacomi, Paulo Viali.

I don't read Italian but I guess the book is a report of population distribution, and

movement of the birds of the Umbra region of Italy.

Steve Greaves Collaboration with Qoro

American print company Qoro have contacted me with a request to publish

some of my paintings as limited edition prints. Qoro produce reproductions

for the Wyeth family of painters (Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth, N.C. Wyeth)

along with other big names such as Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper.

They also work alongside a number of American museums and galleries.

It has been several years since any quality prints have been made of my

paintings and after checking Qoro's info pack which arrived this morning I feel

we can do business and a series of new prints should be available soon.

Qoro brand giclee prints are of the highest quality and are almost

indistinguishable from the original artwork. They are extremely fade resistant

and damp proof. Qoro prints will be replaced free of charge if they become

damaged for any reason.
