Read: The Original Pink Flamingos: Splendor on the Grass, by Don Featherstone
-- In 1957, Don Featherstone sculptured the first three-dimensional pink plastic flamingo, thereby making affordable bad taste accessible to the American public--from Pink Flamingos. This is the tale of a wonderful bird, named by his creator phoenicopteris ruber plasticus; a new avian species, now known to all as Pink Plastic Flamingo. The more than one hundred pictures and the text in this volume are the results of Featherstone's request adoring owners of the pink birds send original photographs to demonstrate their affection for phoenicopteris on its 40th birthday in 1997.
