Raising a Forest
Though widely known for his intricate architectural black and white illustrations, French artist Thibaud Hérem harbours an unexpected passion for gardening as documented in Raising a Forest. The pages are filled with beautiful, delicate and colorful drawings of trees, leaves, plants and seeds, plus some gardener's tools, laid out in a meticulous way that hints at Thibaud's famous attention to detail -- It's Nice That In Raising a Forest he shares the experiences he has accumulated over the last few years, growing fifty different species of tree (mainly in pots) in the tiny garden of his flat in London.
For such a small book, this provides a surprisingly effective window into a wider, parallel world, and a great way for "tree beginners" of all ages to start to appreciate them more fully. --Association of Illustrators
