Fern Book - open. The diagrams that represent the soil and layers of rock under the fern are inspired by cross-sectional diagrams in geology books.

Table of Contents. Each chapter is represented by an image.

Detail, first page of Chapter 3. Most of the photos were taken with a matchbox pinhole camera. They are heavily scratched and otherwise distressed. Each photo is of plants and the light that falls on them. They were torn, against a ruler and by hand, so the edges are not square or straight.
