A sneak peek at The Living Forest

by Timber Press on September 21, 2017

in Natural History

From the leaves and branches of the canopy to the roots and soil of the understory, the forest is a complex, interconnected ecosystem filled with plants, birds, mammals, insects, and fungi. The Living Forest: A Visual Journey Into the Heart of the Woods by Robert Llewellyn and Joan Maloof celebrates this beautiful and mysterious system with lush photography and vivid essays.

The Living Forest is a visual journey that immerses you deep into the woods. The wide-ranging photography by Robert Llewellyn celebrates the small and the large, the living and the dead, and the seen and the unseen. You’ll discover close-up images of owls, hawks, and turtles; aerial photographs that show herons in flight; and time-lapse imagery that reveals the slow change of leaves. In an ideal blend of art and scholarship, the 300 awe-inspiring photographs are supported by lyrical essays from Joan Maloof detailing the science behind the wonder.

“Arresting photographs combine with musings about the web of life in deciduous forests in this coffee-table book.”
