This encyclopedic treasury of 240 exquisite chromolithographic illustrations was based on Philip von Martius''s expeditions through Brazil and Peru. From 1817 to 1820, he traveled over 2, 250 km (1, 400 miles) through the Amazon basin to investigate natural history and native tribes with zoologist Johann Baptist von Spix. The result was an unrivaled catalog of all known genera of the palm family, outlining the modern classification of palms, describing all the palms of Brazil, and producing the first maps of palm biogeography. Martius''s folio is unusual in its inclusion of cross-sectioned diagrams, conveying the architecture of these mighty trees, which central Europeans would have found hard to imagine accurately. Equally remarkable are the color landscapes showing various palmsùoften standing alone in simple and elegant beauty.

Can nature-in all its unruly wildness-be an integral part of creative landscape design? In her beautifully illustrated book, Wild by Design, award-winning designer Margie Ruddick urges designers to look beyond the rules often imposed by both landscaping convention and sustainability checklists.

Drawing on her own projects-from New York City''s Queens Plaza, formerly a concrete jungle of traffic, to a desertscape backyard in Baja, California, to the Living Water Park in Chengdu, China-she offers guidance on creating beautiful, healthy landscapes that successfully reconnect
