Arthur Singer: The Wildlife Art of an American Master
Co-written with Paul Singer

Arthur B. Singer was an American wildlife artist specializing in bird illustration. In a career spanning five decades, he illustrated more than 20 books, including his masterpiece, Birds of the World.

During the 1980s, assisted by his son Alan, Singer’s paintings of state birds were seen by millions when the U.S. Postal Service issued the “State Birds & Flowers” postage stamps. The stamps became one of the largest selling commemoratives in U.S. postal history.

Alan Singer worked with his father on painting revisions to both of his field guides to birds. Alan is a professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology and a prolific printmaker, painter, and author.
