Trees are a vital part of life, just like the sun and the air.
Without trees human kind simply would not have survived. But not only are trees completely essential for shelter, construction and nutrients, they have been an inspiration for art and religion throughout history and all over the world.
The Life and Love of Trees is a beautiful and breathtaking collection of photographs that were taken during a journey from the boreal forest at the edge of the Arctic to rainforests.
The text is simple and accessible, yet written eloquently, so it is interesting yet comprehensive.
This photographic series features huge, ancient bristlecones and fresh-leaved tiny seedlings. The trees in this book are beautiful, scary, charming and rare, and your eyes are bound to widen at these gorgeous photographs of much-needed and much-loved plants: trees.
