    Canberra ornithologist and author Penny
    Olsen has plumbed the depths of the
    National Library of Australia in crafting
    Australian Predators of the Sky. This
    awe-inspiring work includes more than
    200 paintings, lithographs and engravings
    of Australian raptors from the library’s
    archives, encompassing all 34 species of
    diurnal birds of prey and owls. Featured
    artists include highly regarded historical
    figures such John and Elizabeth Gould and
    Ellis Rowan, as well as lesser-known artists
    such as First Fleet naval officers George
    Raper and John Hunter. Their art speaks to
    the contradictory relationship that humans
    have had with these birds of prey – one of
    admiration, but also of fear and sometimes
    even hatred.
