Bark: An Intimate Look at the World’s Trees
by Cédric Pollet
Originally published in France as Écorces: voyage dans l’intimité des arbres du monde. It is the culmination of a 10-year photographic odyssey to find the world’s most beautiful and remarkable examples of tree bark. From the silver birch to the Namibian grape, each bark image is a work of art in itself.
Each example is accompanied by a photograph of the tree in its natural environment, along with information about its origins and uses.
Cédric Pollet combines his scientific background and his passion for plants to create a highly informative text, which complements the beauty of his photographs.
Bark: An Intimate Look at the World’s Trees is included on our New Books List for July 25, 2011.
