Chickens continue to be a steadily growing trend in America-and in book publishing, starting with Stephen Green Armytadge's Extraordinary Chickens (2000) and Extra Extraordinary Chickens (2005). The book appeals to a wide range of customers: backyard chicken owners, heritage-breed foodies, book lovers, photography lovers, and-with a foreword by Isabella Rossellini, an afterword by Jane Goodall, and essays by a best-selling author and a cultural critic-animal lovers. The book pairs the chicken "portraits" with excerpts from classic literature, from Beowulf to James Baldwin, making it also a book about books. The author's previous black-and-white photography title, Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time ($49.95), was at a higher price point and sold more than 32,000 copies since its launch in fall 2014.
