Ralph Steadman, who me, you, and your gran know as the artist behind the illustrations in Fear & Loathing, is releasing a book later this month called Nextinction. The title will feature Steadman's illustrations of soon to be extinct birds, meaning his vivid, almost hallucinogenic style will be tempered by the poignant realities of human destruction. We really are terrible.
Nextinction is a follow up to 2013's Extinct Boids, in which Steadman drew all the 'Boids' which have already been wiped out.
It's all very beautiful, albeit a touch bleak.
The bird in the title image is a Laysan Duck
Head to Popular Science for more information about the birds.
