“Falconry and Art” is the best known work of falconry and a true work of art, ideal for both professional and beginner falconers, for lovers of Bibliophilia, art, Nature and especially birds. At the end of each volume there is a beautiful art gallery with more than 369 paintings in total, where the works of the best painters in the world in this type of art are exhibited and which complement the texts of specialists in the different fields of falconry. .

“As a hunting modality, falconry is a practice that is not suitable for everyone due to its complexity and demands, testing the individual physically and mentally; It is also an intelligence exercise, in which hunting strategies play a crucial role in completing the hunt successfully.”

“As significant as falconry itself is its reflection in painting, this work dedicates a third of its length to it. For the first time, a book brings together the art of the most talented falconry and hunting raptor painters from four continents.”

“Falconry and Art is a work that has concentrated on the different types of sets that can be made in this type of hunting. And, depending on the type of bird used, the prey pursued and the terrain in which the hunting activity takes place, hunting with birds of prey acquires very different characteristics and requires specific techniques.”

“To bring together in a book such a quantity of technical texts and works of art on falconry as the one offered here is really something difficult to achieve, especially if one takes into account the quality and diversity of said contributions and the endorsement that the mastery and talent of its authors means.”

“Falconry and Art is the appropriate work for those falconers with a certain experience who wish to practice other types of sets, with other species or on other prey, but also for those who consider that there is always something to improve or learn, even in what we carry doing for a long time.”

“But the interest of this work goes far beyond falconers, experienced or novice; Any fan of hunting, birds or nature will be able to delight in reading stories as intense as they are varied in which, after all, they talk about one of the most peculiar and wonderful relationships between man and man. the animal in nature.”
