Errol Fuller paints and writes from his studio in Kent, England. The subject matter of his books is usually extinction, art, or the curiosities of natural history. Author of the seminal Extinct Birds, he has also written and designed books on the Great Auk, the Dodo, and the Passenger Pigeon, along with two on birds of paradise (including one, Drawn from Paradise, with Sir David Attenborough).
Recently he has produced Lost Animals, a book of photos of now extinct mammals and birds featuring photographs taken before they vanished forever. He has also published Voodoo Salon, a walk through the extraordinary world of taxidermy, and a catalogue raisonné of the work of the early twentieth century etcher of architectural subjects, Hedley Fitton.
His own paintings (always painted in oils) only rarely feature animals or birds. Instead they often depict snooker, boxing or other slightly disreputable sports.
