“[A] gorgeously illustrated compendium.”―Sunset

This lavishly illustrated atlas takes readers off the crushed path and out of doors standard conceptions of California, revealing its myriad ecologies, topographies, and histories in beautiful maps and path art work. In response to many years of exploring the backcountry of the Golden State, artist-adventurer Obi Kaufmann blends technological know-how and artwork to remove darkness from the multifaceted array of residing, attached techniques like no guide has performed ahead of. Kaufmann depicts layer after layer of the flora and fauna, delighting within the grand scale and main points alike. The impact is staggeringly stunning: offered along California divvied into its fifty-8 counties, as an example, we believe California made of dancing tectonic plates, of watersheds, of wildflower gardens. Maps are more advantageous by way of lively illustrations of flora and fauna, keys that give an explanation for herbal phenomena, and a transparent-sighted however reverential textual content. Filled with persona and colour, a little greater than existence, The California Box Atlas is without equal street go back and forth better half and love letter to a spot.
