Aviary Wonders Inc. Spring Catalog and Instruction Manual

We're into the absurd here lately. This catalog is completely absurd, completely absurd and lovely. It will also make you think a lot about what the world might look like as more and more of its animals and birds go extinct.

Product Details

From Amazon:

Since 2031, Aviary Wonders Inc. has offered bird lovers a unique opportunity: Assemble your own bird from stunningly beautiful and carefully hand-crafted parts. The birds can even be taught to fly and to sing! This slyly satirical crafter's delight is offered as the perfect antidote to extinction of birds in the wild.
Brilliantly illustrated with oil paintings and filled with laugh-aloud asides as well as sobering facts about extinct species, this mock catalog is a clever send-up of contemporary sales spin and a thought-provoking look into an all-too-possible future.
