First published in1982 by Cesare Leonardi and Franca Stagi, The Architecture of Trees is a botanical encyclopedia for designers, architects, and nature enthusiasts alike. The large-format edition features quill-pen illustrations of 212 species of trees at a scale of 1:100. Each one is featured with and without foliage and includes a table of seasonal color variations as well as a depiction of the shadows cast throughout the day and season. The labor of love took the two Italian designers 20 years to complete and this gorgeous re-issue is the book's first English-language volume.
