About this book

This book is the culmination of ten years of photography dedicated to finding the most beautiful examples of tree bark around the globe. The author presents the most spectacular, striking and remarkable examples of bark that he has found across the five continents. Each image is a work of art in itself, and is accompanied by a photograph of the tree in its natural environment, along with information about its origins and uses. Cedric Pollet has combined his scientific background and his passion for plants to create a highly informative text, which complements the beauty of his photographs.
