A Celebration of All Things Canine: Dogs, by Tim Flach and Lewis Blackwell

Dog GodsDogs, by Tim Flach and Lewis Blackwell is a celebration of our affection for man’s best friend:

The human-dog relationship has continually evolved and continues to forge new functions and forms – so the very meaning of dogs is constantly being rewritten. Humankind’s assigning of tasks to dogs has played a significant part in our own ability to thrive over thousands of years.

No other mammal is so diverse in form, function or value. The celebration of love for all things canine can in many ways be attributed to our own self-love. We have dogs because they help us and we shape them to our own needs – most obviously by breeding them and altering their function or form at a fundamental genetic level. By looking very closely at what we have now, we may understand dogs better and in turn, understand ourselves.

Lewis Blackwell’s The Life and Love of Trees Explores the Majesty of Nature

The Life and Love of TreesThe Life and Love of Trees by Lewis Blackwell is a book inspired by the imaginings and possibilities offered by trees rather than factual observations:

The book concerns itself more with how we see trees rather than detailing what we see. It collates the work of many photographers, writers and thinkers who have taken their inspiration from the humble tree.

Blackwell writes that trees, the ultimate survivalists, live in harmony with their surroundings and can be found in vast extremes of nature, from the Arctic Circle to the toughest deserts. They have been around since before the current manifestation of humans existed and will no doubt be around long after we are gone.

One decent-sized tree generates enough oxygen to support a family of four. This may go some way to explaining why trees are now recognised in popular culture as a vital and threatened element at the heart of the living world and are seen as potential saviours of our planet.
