Context

Published in 2018 and selling out at that year's RA Summer Exhibition - the 250th coordinated by Grayson Perry CBE RA, these private little songbirds featured in the 2020 RA Calendar and then later became one of The World's First Plastic-Negative Greetings Cards in December 2021. Thanks to Richard's partnership with the eco start-up Zero Plastic.

The reverse of the cards read:

The warbling white-eye (Zosterops japonicus), previously known by the English name "Japanese white-eye", were taxonomically combined in 2018 with the "mountain white-eye", as they were discovered to be the same species. Known in Japan as 'mejiro' (メジロ, 目白), also meaning "white-eye", one can only imagine what these two small, active, noisy songbirds make of this.
