Native Trees of Canada by Leanne Shapton


The Native Trees of Canada by Leanne Shapton is a simple book of quiet, painted images of leaves that is somehow extremely satisfying in its simplicity. With no text to mar the boldness of the leaves that spill out across the page, we are left to imagine what it might be to wander through a very mixed Canadian forest. Shapton based her book on an old edition of a reference book, turning her portrayals of nature into visual poetry – the most stripped-down haiku, at that.

Paperback, 96 pages. Drawn & Quarterly, 2010. $14.92 at Amazon.
