De Nieuwe Gids voor de niet-bestaande Vogels van Europa is the successor to the Kleine Gids voor de niet-bestaande Vogels van Europa, published in 2013. Artist and amateur ornithologist O.C. Hooymeijer has tirelessly continued his search for non-existent birds since his appearance. Expeditions to all corners of Europe - from the north of Russia to the southernmost Mediterranean countries - led to the discovery of more than fifty new species, such as the Oudhaan, Thread glider and Transport whistler. These species are all described in detail and illustrated in this New Guide for the non-existent Birds of Europe
De Nieuwe Gids voor de niet-bestaande Vogels van Europa also includes Volksvogel wisdoms associated with the discovered birds that the writer has recorded from the mouths of very elderly residents, predominantly from the countryside. In this way, proverbs that are almost forgotten are preserved for posterity.
In addition, De Nieuwe Gids voor de niet-bestaande Vogels van Europa includes recipes with non-existent birds. For this Hooymeijer consulted not only many culinary specialists, but also archives and libraries throughout Europe.
The New Guide for the non-existent Birds of Europe is a beautifully illustrated edition that will certainly appeal to art and bird lovers with its fantasy.
Visual artist O.C. Hooymeijer (Vlaardingen, 1958) graduated in 1981 from the Academy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam. From that moment on many successful exhibitions followed, both in the Netherlands and abroad. People have always been central to his work. With the start of his projects "The Great Exotic Birdshow" and "The non-existent birds of Europe", humans have given way to the bird.
