This is a special-edition facsimile of the Carpophaga Luctuosa or Torres Strait Fruit Pigeon (Plate 60) from Volume 5 of The Birds of Australia by John Gould.
Hill House was awarded the right to create the facsimile using the original works as reference. Each print was made using the traditional process of plates, in groupings, dependent upon the color of the bird(s). These are truly remarkable copies and are said to be indistinguishable from the originals when viewed behind glass.
