The Living Forest
The Living Forest: A Visual Journey Into the Heart of the Woods | Joan Maloof, Robert Llewellyn
5 posts | 1 read | 8 to read
A spectacular journey deep into the heart of the forest 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. Some of it is easily discovered, but many parts remain difficult or impossible for the human eye to see. Until now. 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. Youll 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.

This book is GORGEOUS!! If you're a nature lover, appreciate trees and animals, and want to learn more about common occurrences in the forest (that we humans often miss) then this book is for you! I totally loved it. It's a beautiful coffee table book with excellent photography alongside information of the natural world that I found surprising and awe-inspiring. 🌲🌳🌿🌱🍃🌾🐢🦎🕷🐜🐌🐛🦉

#TBRtemptation post 2! Just released. Another great coffee table book. Joan Maloof provides essays on the science of the forest ecosystem, and Llewellyn provides stunning photography to enhance each essay. Flora, fauna, topography, soil, from close-ups to wide panoramic time-lapsed aerial shots. Beautiful! #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
