Cartoonist, friend of the feathered and national treasure Ralph Steadman's unique take on Critically Endangered birds.

About the Author

RALPH STEADMAN was born in 1936. He began his career as a cartoonist, and through the years has diversified into many creative fields. Ralph collaborated with Dr Hunter S. Thompson in the birth of 'gonzo' journalism, with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; he has illustrated classics such as Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island and Animal Farm, and written and illustrated his own books, which include Sigmund Freud, I Leonardo and The Big I Am. Steadman is also a printmaker, and has travelled the world's vineyards, culminating in his books The Grapes of Ralph, Untrodden Grapes and Still Life with Bottle. CERI LEVY is a film-maker, who started out making music videos before moving into the world of documentaries. His works include Bananaz, a film about the inner machinations of the group Gorillaz, and the forthcoming The Bird Effect; as co-curator of the exhibition that started Ralph Steadman painting birds, Ceri is a crucial cog in the boids' creation myth.

Reviews

Steadman's colourful, spiky illustrations of critically endangered birds ... a dazzling aviary of 'nearly extinct' boids. Save them all and make the ink-spattered Steadboid vert happy. * Saga *
Hatched from the minds of gonzo cartoonist Ralph Steadman and writer-filmmaker Ceri Levy, "Nextinction" is a visual plea for conservation efforts, depicting nearly 200 birds facing an irrevocable fate: extinction. Levy's humorous but educational text accompanies a spectacle of colorful plumage rendered with Steadman's unique illustrative style, right down to those trademark ink blotches. * Boston Globe *
Steadman has a talent for birds, and his scratchy, ink-splattered style works wonders with beaks and feathers. The text is informative and wildly eccentric by turns. * New Statesman *
Nextinction is something of a rarity: a truly original take on popular science. Love them or hate them, Ralph Steadman's vivid cartoons bring out the character of these endangered birds in a way that photography and other illustrations can't match. * BBC Focus *
