In 1989, two men had an idea to stage a fair showcasing the very best of all things to do with birds and wildlife. 25 years later, the British Birdfair has become the largest such event in the world. From the Birdfair's humble beginnings, this book show how, with the help of its sponsors and volunteers, it has grown beyond all expectations.

The founders commissioned Robert Gillmor to produce artwork for all but three of the iconic posters to promote the Fair. This is a pictorial history of the fair, shown through the posters.
