Some Yeares Travels

Because this early 17th century travel book, (printed in England- 1638) describes some of the most fascinating flora and fauna in parts of Africa, India and Persia, the design ideas were endless. The finished concept is of a proud flamingo in front of a temple, and on the reverse, a set of Dodo birds watching a 17th century sailing ship disappear into the sea.... not realizing the extinction of their species in the centuries to come.
