Ellen H. (eeeee) reviewed The Fairest Fowl: Portraits of Championship Chickens on
Helpful Score: 1
Excellent. Beautiful and loving photographs of all kinds of chickens. The companion article by Ira Glass reads like a segment from This American Life. I know next to nothing about chickens, but I still enjoyed the portraits. If you find yourself drawn to animal exhibits at the state fair, you may enjoy this book.
This book is printed on nice paper stock. It is full of many great photos of chickens. There really isn't too many breeds of chicken pictured here, but the originality of the photos makes up for that. Very good pictures of chickens. Personally, I didn't care for the written part by Ira Glass. It was the typical 'make fun of the ignorance of chickens' that makes country people squirm. Otherwise, I enjoyed this book very well.
