Biography

Josephine Bacon has been picking wild mushrooms since she was nine. Fired with enthusiasm for fungi by her natural sciences teacher at school, at the age of sixteen, she joined the British Mycological Society. She has a collection of 500 books, old and new, about fungi and has participated in many forays. Joesphine has translated four books on fungi from French, and has written several articles about wild mushrooms. This is her first book on the subject.

Paul Sterry is one of the UK's leading wildlife and natural history photographers, with more than 40 highly successful books to his name. Originally trained as a biologist, he uses his knowledge of natural history and ecology to take images that serve to depict wildlife in a natural context, and to celebrate its beauty.
