Xerophile

Cactus Photographs from Expeditions of the Obsessed is the first book of its kind. A selection of over five hundred photographs of arguably the rarest and most spectacular plants on earth, photographed in their natural habitats over the past 80 years by a global cadre of obsessed cactus aficionados made up of both the amateur and the professional—from Ph.D. botanist to banker, art teacher to cancer researcher.

Xerophile is not a field guide or taxonomy. Neither is it a book of photography in the traditional sense. Rather, it mines the space between science and art, between gravity and levity; a space in which plants that by many measures should not exist, and may very well cease to live on in the darkness of dusty slide carousels and forgotten old hard drives of those who have devoted their lives to searching, writing, gossiping, thinking, dreaming and, if they are lucky—after weeks of false turns, stuck jeeps, and steep mountain paths—laying their eyes on the plant they have so desperately been seeking. This is a fascinating book that you will pick up and read many, many times—and enjoy! 500+ color photos. 7-1/4" x 10", 352 pages, Flexibound………BRAND NEW !!-------------$59.95
