Bark: An Intimate Look at the World's Trees

Author(s): Cedric Pollet

1. Trees - General

This extraordinary book is the culmination of ten years of photography dedicated to finding the most beautiful examples of tree bark around the globe. Here are the most spectacular, striking and remarkable examples of bark found across the five continents. Each image is a work of art in itself, and is accompanied by a photograph of the tree in its natural environment, along with information about its origins and uses. Cedric Pollet has combined his scientific background and his passion for plants to create a highly informative text, which compliments the beauty of his photographs. Already a bestseller in France, where it was awarded the Redoute Prix Artistique for 2009, Bark will delight and inspire any nature lover.

Orders 2-3 weeks and price available when ordered.
