BAC: British Art Center copy bound in publisher's original printed green boards.
"A strand of dried birdweed, brown and yellow strands twisted around a moss covered branch. The withered misshapen clump of dock, looking like it contains all the colours in the universe. A dense pattern of ferns and bracken into which a scarlet leaf has fallen creating a striking contrast of colour. These are some of the simple and yet highly complex observations from nature that have informed the works in this book. I wanted to create a simple picture book, showing in some instances the exact locations and in others the general area of landscape from where the paintings are based, alongside the work itself." -- Page [5].
