New work: bird migration

For most of human existence, the seasonal flight of migratory birds and insects has been hidden in plain sight in the night sky above us.  The last century of technological advances accelerated our ability to see, study, and participate in this breathtaking effort millions of years in the making. All the while, the landscapes to which these sojourners arrive is disappearing faster than ever.

This book examines that emerging map with history, humor, curiosity, and a vibrant visual imagination, prompting the reader to look at the skies above in a new light.

Watch Annie summarize her work at the 2018 E.G. Conference.
