Coming in 2016: THOREAU’S WILDFLOWERS, illustrated by Barry Moser!

imageI am delighted to report that I have just signed a contract with Yale University Press to publish my next book, Thoreau’s Wildflowers! The book is scheduled to appear in the spring of 2016.

Thoreau’s Wildflowers is a selection of observations from Thoreau’s Journal between 1850 and 1861, arranged by the day of the year. The text is illustrated with more than 200 long-unavailable black and white drawings by Barry Moser, first published in the 1979 book Flowering Plants of Massachusetts. I am very grateful to Mr. Moser for allowing me to reprint this beautiful work.

Thoreau’s Wildflowers also includes an introduction by myself, and Ray Angelo‘s classic essay ”Thoreau as Botanist.”

For a taste of what you’ll find in the book, follow me on Twitter at @ThoreausFlowers.

El Anatsui’s Gravity and Grace

image

Do you live in Des Moines, Miami, or San Diego? Mark your calendar to see Gravity and Grace, a major exhibition of the work of Ghanaian artist El Anatsui.

My essay on El Anatsui is now up at Warscapes magazine. (And check out my other work for Warscapes.)

Floor Wall Tile

No special reason for posting this—I just liked it. More photos from my wanderings around Brooklyn (mostly) are available on Flickr.

Terracotta masks

On my way to the post office I see a strange tableau at the base of a tree.
