The Lives of Leaves: 50 Leaves, what they mean and what they mean to us

Written by Dan Crowley and Douglas Justice

A beautifully illustrated compendium of leaves from around the world, The Lives of Leaves gives us a fantastic insight into one of nature’s marvels. Organised by leaf shape, Crowley and Justice tell the stories, science, and history of that leaf, in the process unearthing an eye-opening conversation on what makes them so important within our world.

Serving a myriad of purposes, leaves act as crucial sources of food for animals whilst providing shelter and medicine to humans. Long the subjects of art, leaf patterns have also been commonly portrayed in ancient cultures, serving as artistic inspiration. In some places leaves are even used as musical instruments!

It is the story of what they do, what we do with them, and why we cannot do without them. A great gift for the nature enthusiast in your life.
