Birds of Unusual Vitality Vol. 2

Oh my, what a crazy couple of months!

In May, I had the great pleasure of launching Birds of Unusual Vitality Volume Two at the Australian Aeropress Championship, before heading off to Italy to shoot at the WBC for Sprudge (and subsequently having a bit of a holiday.)

As a result, it's only now that I've had the time to post up about this beautiful little publication! A collection of stories from over the last two and half years, Volume Two was printed in Melbourne by Moule Print and made possible by Sprudge Publishing, as their first print venture.

It was designed by the most excellent Aaron Maxwell of Everyday Coffee, who also designed Volume One, and to whom I am forever grateful to for his phenomenal work.

Volume Two features portraits and articles with Tim Wendelboe, Erin McCarthy, Simran Sethi, Talor Browne, M'Lissa Muckerman, Sean Bonner, Ricardo Zelaya, Sam Sgambellone, and José Aguilar, alongside a foreword from the one and only Peter Giuliano.

There's also a pretty special photo centrefold with previously unpublished photographs of some of the interviewees and some candid moments of lovely folks in the industry (ever wanted to see the inimitable Ben Kaminsky jump into a pool? You're welcome).

The book is available for purchase now, online here - if you'd like to purchase more than one, or have any questions about international shipping, please don't hesitate to email me, eileen.p.kenny[at]

Thank you to everybody who made Volume Two possible, here's to hopefully making a Volume Three in the future!
