John James Audubon created the book The Birds of America, which contained 435 engravings, on pages as large as 99cm x 66cm. The engravings were arranged in 4 volumes and were published between 1827 and 1838. Each image was hand painted by the author himself in watercolor technique and was accompanied by an extra volume of text called Ornithological Biographies written by the ornithologist William MacGillivray.
The original Birds of America is the most expensive printed book in the world.
