Summary
"This book is a compilation of texts, each accompanied by an illustration, including a personal anecdote from the journal of the artist, a parallel experience in the form of a folktale by Sheryl A. Karas about the Abies alba (Silver fir), a habitat study from 2012 and the taxonomy of the tree. As the anecdote is read, an image from behind the paper dominates silently. The image of the fir forest is revealed when the French fold forming the heart of this book is opened fully"--Artist's website
