I am proud to have two of my photographs included in a massive collaborative project which will see the creation of a stunning book of tree images at an epic scale: Tree of the Planet.
Trees of the Planet has been fully designed and is now live on Kickstarter with the aim to raise the funds necessary to bring it into production.
The big edition measures 35 x 50 cms (13.7 x 19.6 in), with almost 500 pages bound in an amazing hardcover with a very special front cover inlay. The materials used to fit it are FSC papers, cloths, real bark, cotton and moss. The book comes including a sophisticated book stand consisting in 10 parts, no screws needed for an easy mounting within minutes.
The small edition is half the size of the big one, measuring 25 x 35 cm (9.8 x 13.7 in) in portrait format. It is an open-spine book, making it very stylish, with a silk screen title printed on the spine. The cover image (Hans Strand’s Birch Bark) is printed on a fancy cotton-like paper and glued onto the cover. The book has 540 pages + endpapers. There are more pages because both editions aren’t totally identical, due to image resolutions and the advantage of the smaller format to have more of the images in full crop, what didn’t work out in the big edition.
Visit Kickstarter [project goes live 14th October] to read more, and find out how you can back the project.
