The California Field Atlas by Obi Kaufmann
Released Sept 1st is the one of it's kind book, the California Field Atlas. Author and friend Obi spent years capturing all of the great state's natural wonders in paintings. His collection is like no other guide or exploration of nature.
From Obi ...
"I present California the way I understand it: a living natural system, an immortal cell with multitudinous organelles, constituent parts that define its anatomy. This urban veneer that we’ve imposed on the land is only a temporary jacket. Fast forward a thousand years, these roads will have turned to dust, but the river’s course will be largely unchanged. The quality of California’s natural character that abides our human imposition is the main character of California I’m trying to describe or beginning to explore."
