Parrots Over Puerto Rico

By Mazza Museum

Roth uses vertical page illustrations to amplify the sense of height. This allows her plenty of space for dramatic paper and fabric collages that depict the vivid blue-and-green parrots soaring over the island as well as the parrots’ lives and struggles above human activities that have altered the island’s ecosystem over the centuries. . . . A thoughtful and thorough examination of the ways human action can both help and harm animal populations.
