John James Audubton was a scientist and artist and made it his life's work to study and draw birds.

John observed and drew different kinds of birds when he was still young. By profession he was hunter, trader and taxidermist. However, his financial situation deteriorated so much that he had to go to prison in 1819 because of bankruptcy. When he was released, he was determined to catalogue all the bird species of North America. Financially, it was mainly his wife who took care of the family. So he traveled through America and searched for different kinds of birds. To paint them, he shot the birds with fine shotgun ammunition so that the body would remain as undamaged as possible. Then he fixed the dead bird with wires so that he could draw it as lifelike as possible.

Of the 1,000 drawings he made, he wanted to publish a book but at first he could not find a publisher. When he travelled to England, he quickly became known with his drawings and also found a printer. He called the book Birds of America and it was a great success. Later he wrote four more books.

In memory of John James Audubton, a place in Pennsylvania was named after him, as well as an institute, a cable-stayed bridge and several parks, municipalities and administrative units. In 2010, an edition of the book Birds of America sold for the equivalent of 8.72 million euros, making it the most expensive printed book of all time. © Meisterdrucke
