“This book is the result of 20 years of methodically observing trees through meticulous study and hand-drawing. This is a large, well made, generous book - a slow paced study that is an antidote to our fast digital world. This is an ideal gift for designers, architects and those who are drawn to the hand drawn, to nature, trees and systems thinking’.
