"The weeds I drew for this book I picked at random. Each one held unique mysteries for me, and each one differed dramatically in shape and structure from the other. "Burn them! Tear them out! Destroy them!"–This is the reaction of most people to the mere sight of weeds. What I think and feel about wild plants I hope I have been able to convey through the way I have drawn them." (Artist). Silver elaborates on the process of the contemporary architect to arrive at the form of his buildings, and Saul Levine on "Nature seen through the telephoto lens of a mind familiar with the miracle of fertile structure found in such profusion during the height of summer," seeing the "remarkable efficiency of nature's construction." Beautifully produced book printed to heavy card stock, yellow for the text and cream featuring the original lithographs. Light cracking at joints of binding, and two inch chip at tail of spine. Else in fine condition. Near fine condition. Item #46824
