Description - Natural Surfaces by Judy A. Juracek

An inspirational reference tool, Natural Surfaces catalogues hundreds of surfaces and objects found in the natural world for use by artists and designers who wish to draw on nature for imagery. The third book in the acclaimed Surfaces series, this volume contains more than 1,200 high-quality colour photographs of trees and shrubs, flowers, foliage, grass, fruits and vegetables, stone and sand, water and sky. Selected and organized by a designer for designers, the images offer detailed views as well as longer shots providing a wealth of source material to meet the research needs of all artists. An introduction by landscape designer Gordon Hayward discusses research and garden design, and interviews with landscape architect Laurie Olin, botanical illustrator Christabel King, and wildlife exhibition designer John Gwynne give insight into how these professionals use visual research in their work. A glossary, bibliography and lists of photo locations and research sources are provided, and a comprehensive index of the photographs makes it easy to find just the image you need.
