About this book

Discover the intriguing world of the leaf with this handy pocket guide. Beautifully illustrated throughout, The Little Guide to Leaves offers a fresh perspective on identifying the trees and plants around you. It features 40 of the most spectacular leaves from around the world, including the common British tree leaves we know and love, as well as exotic palms, ferns and houseplants. Each leaf has been delicately illustrated by printmaker Tom Frost to capture its individual characteristics, and is accompanied by information about the tree or plant to which it belongs and where it can be found, plus associated facts and fables. There is also an interactive spotter's guide at the back, where you can check off and mark the date of when you found each leaf. This informative, practical and beautiful guide is part of a new nature series designed to encourage creativity through exploring the outdoors.

Biography

Printmaker and illustrator Tom Frost graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2001, returning to his home town of Bristol to work as an illustrator for a number of years. He now divides his time between printmaking, restoring his crumbling Georgian house in rural Wales and raising a young family. In recent years he has worked with clients including The V&A, Perry's Cider, Art Angels, Freight Household Goods, Selvedge Magazine, Betty & Dupree, The Archivist and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. His work highlights a fascination for old matchboxes, stamps, folk art, tin toys, children's books and the natural world.
