Trees of Life
A captivatingly informative and visually beautiful survey of the tree species – from all over the world – that human cultures have found most useful.
Each tree species is the subject of a concise text centred on a story or stories about the tree in question, and is depicted by means of a photograph, painting or other aesthetic artefact. The species will be organized thematically according to the virtues they impart, be that in the form of timber, nuts, fruit or medicine. From the bloodwood to the breadfruit and from the cinchona to the peach, these are trees that offer not merely shelter, timber and fuel but also medicines, dyes, foods and fibres.
