A Fulcrum Field Guide to Birds and Other Publishing Creatures

Last week, a few of us at Fulcrum stopped by the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art to catch their Thinking About Flying exhibit.  For our readers not in the know, the exhibit consists of homing pigeons that patrons can take home and release.

The marketing team unilaterally decided that we were responsible enough to keep a homing pigeon alive for a couple hours.

Our marketing manager and a certain brave blogger pose with their newly acquired homing pigeon, Smoky.

When it was time to say good-bye, our ornithophobic marketing assistant and our bird-happy blogger had mixed reactions.

Smoky didn't really know what to make of freedom when the time came. Not to worry, moments later he figured it out.

There’s still time to visit the exhibit, and I can think of few things more enjoyable than taking in the sights of downtown Denver while carrying a homing pigeon in a cardboard box.

In fact, we were so stoked from our homing pigeon adventures that it was only a matter of time before we latched onto a new Internet trend: owling.

Hooooo hooooo! They say the Internet is slowly killing the book industry. We say O RLY?

Even our authors got into it. Here, Matt Dembicki, editor of Trickster: Native American Tales, a Graphic Collection, does his best owl…or maybe he's just being the hero that Gotham deserves…a silent guardian, a watchful protector, or as some might say, a dark knight.

We hope this was as much of a hoot* for our readers as it was for us!

*I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
