feathers unfettered features poetic and visual portraits of 25 New Zealand birds, some common garden, forest or sea birds, others in danger of extinction. The poems and drawings 'speak' to each other. Both are ornithologically accurate, while at the same time fanciful. The bo...ok is structured in a 'scientific' manner, in alphabetical order by Maori name, giving also species names and common names. Zelas's poems portray the birds' physical and behavioural characteristics, sometimes with a twist that alludes to their relationship with humans or the environment. Napier artist/poet Jan FitzGerald is well-known for her charming, indigenous-style illustrations, which locate the birds firmly in Aotearoa New Zealand.
