A bowerbird is an Australian native bird that builds a reedy ground nest and goes to extraordinary lengths to decorate it with "stolen" goods & found objects like shells, bones, pegs, & shiny milk caps.About the Author:
Best-selling author of Etcetera, The Stylist's Guide to NYC and Nomad, Sibella Court has always been a bowerbird. Her first bowerbird tendencies were noticed when, at the age of three, she put together collections of shells, sequins, beads, and ribbons. Like her avian counterpart, she goes far and wide to add to her collections, enjoys arranging and rearranging the pieces and, ultimately, believes that collections, containing the memories they do, are a vital part of any home.
Chris Court's passion for photography began in his early teens when his mother, with great foresight, sent he and his brother and two sisters to photography courses every vacation. Since taking up photography as a career, he has won many awards, worked throughout the world on leading titles and has also photographed the best-selling books Etcetera and Nomad, collaborating with his sister Sibella.
