The Living Forest (Gallery)

The engagement between Nature and human expression stretches back millenia. From Timpuseng cave to Walden, the relationship between the two has borne substantial fruit. The Living Forest (Timber Press), a collaboration between Joan Maloof and Robert Llewellyn belongs to this rich tradition and represents a valuable contribution to it. It’s pages teem with life. Appalachian Mountain salamanders. Black and orange millipedes. Dogwood bulbs and poisonous mushrooms. Moreover, the book serves as a reminder of the natural world’s sublimity during an age of iPhone screens, Big Data, and cold machine learning.

The following images were supplied by Robert Llewellyn.
