This biography traces the path of Cooper's life and art, from his childhood spent in the bush, to his teenage years as an apprentice taxidermist at Carey Bay Zoo and, later, to his work as a window dresser and landscape artist. It documents his fruitful partnership with wife and collaborator Wendy Cooper and his extensive travels in Australia and abroad in pursuit of his subjects. The author's commentary reveals the development of an artist and the trajectory of a life, while extracts from Cooper's extensive field notebooks give an insight into his interests and processes.
