Description
Mixing botanical illustration, photographs, artefacts and fine art, a visually rich and informative exploration of 80 tree species from around the world. A captivating collection of tales considering familiar and introducing less well-known world tree species; each specially chosen for their cultural resonance as well as practical utility. The book reflects upon the importance of each species to human development. From the national story of a country bound up in the bloodwood tree to medicines, dyes, foodstuffs and fibres which have changed the human experience. Arranged in six thematic sections: from trees prized for timber, fruit, nuts and other materials to trees which have played a pivotal role in maintaining communities, and trees which are vital to humanity and the planet.
