Bowerbird

bowerbird [bow·er·bird] n. 1. Any of various songbirds of the family Ptilonorhynchidae. The males of which build large elaborate structures of grasses, twigs, and brightly colored materials to attract females. 2. A person who collects miscellaneous objects. Bestselling author Sibella Court has always been a bowerbird. Her first bowerbird tendencies were noticed when, at the age of three, she put together collections of shells, sequins, beads and ribbons. Like her avian counterpart, she goes far and wide to add to her collections, enjoys arranging and rearranging the pieces and, ultimately, believes that collections, containing the memories they do, are a vital part of any home. In Bowerbird, Sibella reveals her very personal and surprising approach to collecting and collections. She shows how to procure the elements of a collection, how to organise and store them, and how to display them in creative and ever-changing ways. With the help of Bowerbird, you will view your belongings in a whole new light.
