This book was inspired by the word "nidificate" which means to build a nest. I painted seven different watercolor images to illustrate a variety of species and nest-building techniques. The book has a hard cover covered in book cloth. There is a small image on the front of a nest with three eggs.

A scanned image of my favorite painting before it was folded and assembled into the book:
