Book of the Week








Illustrator, author and publisher Leanne Shapton stumbled upon a tree catalogue published by the Canadian Forestry Branch in 1917. Seeing the beauty in these straightforward landscape pictures, she translated them into her own The Native Trees of Canada. Here, a few paintings from the book.

I found it posted as book of the week on Tory Burch's website, what a great selection!



I apologize for the lack of posts today....I'm moving!
Whoever said that moving is the third most stressful life event doesn't have my library and closets!
