Kingmaker: De Rauw-Sablon, a Racing Pigeon Dynasty: by Silvio Mattacchione BA MA (Author) Nikolaas Gysebrecht (Author) (B00SKC9YBQ)

The “De Rauw Sablon Strain” is the most sought after and most valuable racing pigeon strain in the world today. The most famous fanciers in the world today are scrambling to purchase whatever they can of this  incredible family. The prices that this performance strain has achieved at public auction over the past three years, is nothing short of historic.

The National Results of these truly unique pigeons is unmatched by any other strain in history. This is the definitive work on what is without question the most important strain in the world today! A superb collaborative effort by Silvio Mattacchione, arguably Canada’s best known racing pigeon fancier, and Nikolaas Gyselbrecht, the founder of www.pipa.be.

Canadian author Silvio Mattacchione BA MA and Nikolaas Gyselbrecht , the founder of PIPA, combined their unique talents and jointly researched and co authored the history of the  now internationally recognized  and much sought after super strain universally known as “De Rauw–Sablon”.

Important interviews were held with all of the key personalities involved in this unique history, including the founders themselves. The result of their joint efforts is an  exceptionally designed, visually stunning, incredible full color coffee table quality, hardcover book comprised of 156-pages  outlining the origins, history and unparalleled success of the most important performance strain in the world today! Their joint participation was a unique experience that has resulted in an outstanding book of award winning quality and historical importance that definitely has  worldwide appeal. We certainly live in interesting times and with the emergence of this powerful strain “De Rauw-Sablon” to the international market we will also be witness to the birth of a new group of powerful racing pigeon “Kings.”

The impact  of the “De Rauw-Sablon” pigeons will be felt in all countries and at all levels from the race results at local club and combine levels to the great national races and the ever popular global one loft super races! Printed in Singapore by Silvio Mattacchione under the direction of Mr. Albert Tham  a Master printer and graduate of the London School of printing. “Kingmaker” was printed on the most advanced “Heidelberg” sheet fed press available in the world today that features advanced quality control systems including inking, image registration control thus insuring the sharpest print reproduction available in the world today. This advanced Heidelberg prints both sides of the sheet at the same time with a total of 8-cylinder working at the same time similar to a newspaper web press, but totally different because this  sheet -fed technology delivers an exponentially sharper dot/screen resolution.

About the Author: from Quote on back cover

Roger Sweeney has spent several years at various zoological and bird gardens in the United Kingdom. In 1989 he became Livestock Manager at "Birdworld", the United Kingdom's largest bird gardens. While at Birdworld success was achieved with a wide diversity of species, including Parrots, Softbills, Pheasants, Ratites, Penguins, Spoonbills, Wading birds and Birds of Prey.  The Eclectus Parrot has been bred at Birdworld consistently over the last 10 years and considerable work has been carried out into its incubation and neo-natal care. In 1993 Roger became a full time consultant at "Birds International", one of the world's largest breeding and research centers located in the Philippines. This facility houses what is surely the world's largest collection of captive Eclectus Parrots! While at "Birds International" Roger was also responsible for the management of some of the world's rarest birds including the Spix Macaw, Mount Apo Lorikeet, Sumba Hornbill and Palm Cockatoo. As of mid 1994 Riger has been retained as a consultant to "Loro Parque".

Growing Wild Inviting Wildlife into your Yard: by Constance Perenyi (Author)
Growing Wild Inviting Wildlife into your Yard: by Constance Perenyi (Author) (9781895270051)

When the yard of an abandoned house goes to seed, neighbors discover that the unkempt garden attracts birds, squirrels, butterflies and other garden animals.  Illustrated with colorful collages, this picture book traces a suburban neighborhood's evolution from a sterile environment to a biologically diverse one, introducing youngsters to the concept of gardening for wildlife. 

When the house is sold, the new owners create a garden that pleases the eye and wildlife, so that everyone is happy.  This encourages neighborhood-wide changes that transforms a once lifeless garden plots into brilliant, diverse bits of "homegrown wilderness".

After the story there are easy gardening projects for parents and children to garden together.  Also listed are the names of plants and animals shown in the illustrations, ideas to attract wildlife, as well as basic gardening and ecological principles.
