Trees often play a huge part in childhood games. Climbing and scampering among their branches, children view the world from a new perspective. As adults, the majesty of trees and their ability to transform a cityscape or a landscape still holds a certain allure. "The Book of Leaves" brings trees down to our level and gives us a window into the remarkably detailed biology of the humble leaf. 600 leaves are shown to their full potential with lifesize photographs of each beautiful specimen. Each entry includes: actual size photographs of the leaf taken on a lightbox to reveal the smallest features; details of the range, distribution, abundance and habitat of each tree; and, brief and engaging scientific and historical accounts. "The Book of Leaves" brings the forest to life through one of its smallest yet most important parts. It is a must for tree enthusiasts and leaf collectors alike, as well as those who just wish to bring nature into their living room. You will see leaves from a wholly new and unique perspective.
