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.
