| Dear Steve
“With the trees, we find our ancestors. With the trees, we connect to the past, bring knowledge forward, and walk into the future” – Noel Nannup
Please join us on Thursday 11 May for the launch of Forests Atlas edited by Daniel Jan Martin with Noel Nannup, Alice Ford, Nansen Robb, Clancy Martin and Mariela Espino Zuppa.
The Forests Atlas is a field guide to the forests of south west Australia. It blends maps with artworks, photography and story in celebration of the life and colour of these forests. From the waterways, to the ancient Jarrah, the Numbats, to the Black Cockatoos and towering Karri, the Forests Atlas paints a shimmering picture of the interconnectedness of trees.
