Leaves of Leaves (Really)
Yes, the leaves are turning in northern Michigan (beautiful color this year!), and I'm still turning the leaves of books, indoors and out, but the other day I turned leaves in a book of trees, appreciating colorful images of leaves on leaves.
An Introduction to Trees, by John Kieran, was published by Hanover House in 1954 and illustrated in beautiful, big, full oolor by Michael H. Bevans.
Too large to be a field guide, this book’s illustrations would not leave identification in doubt. Flowers, seeds, nuts, bark and fall color are all shown.
I love to turn the pages and look at these pictures--then go outside and look at living trees (see previous post).
