About this book

A fresh approach to one of the most pressing issues of our day, this book showcases contemporary botanical artworks created by ASBA artists from the US and around the world - produced especially for this project.

Reproduced in beautiful detail are 44 artworks of threatened and endangered plants from North America and beyond, accompanied by the backstories of each plant and the artist who sought it and captured its image.

The stories behind plant endangerment are as varied and fascinating as the plants themselves, and each essayist illuminates a different aspect of this timely topic.
