  1. Hannah Fortna Hannah Fortna says:

    Thought provoking implied commentary on how everything is connected communication is rooted in language which is rooted in comprehensible and relatable ideas such as metaphors like rooted; how we choose to communicate influences the world around us just as how we treat the environment effects the world; patterns in the natural world indicate facts and concepts just as the density of the text forests preceding each alphabetic text suggests the length and word density of the text contained in the subseuent pages; words about trees are immortal while trees are perishable; this book of tree rooted communication is eco friendly thereby allowing readers to read these words about trees without feeling guilty for killing them

    Sommige stukken vond ik vrij saai met allemaal biologische details over bomen maar het idee van een 'bomen' alfabet vind ik wel heel interessant

  3. Lauren Lauren says:

    Definitely targeted at readers with a love for trees Holten has put together a collection of texts from 50 different authors scientists poets and the like If there is a common theme beyond merely trees it is how humans over the ages have related to understood and communicated about trees

    An unusual mind stretching book Authoreditor is an artist from Dublin working in NYC It is a book whose design paper choice cover choice drawings and text all interrelate There are about 50 essays included some are several pages some are a couple of lines some speak directly about trees some do not Authors are artists poets authors scientists etc Which will I remember the most? Maybe the one Against Trees by the artist who grew up terrified of Lyme disease ticks in Connecticut which he associated with trees and who also prefers digital texts to tree books Or maybe the ones about libraries which are created using tree products Or the one about Liberty Trees specifically the famous elm on Boston Commons that the British chopped down Or Rachel Sussman's story of the 3500 year old bald cypress near Orlando that had its own park but was burned destroyed Each story is also printed in tree text with each letter of the alphabet being assigned a tree euivalent Surprisingly lovely and interesting A cedar for a c an elm for an e a fir for an f a gingko for a g

    One of the most beautiful and endearing books I have ever readArtist Katie Holten has created a forest on the pages Bringing in writing on trees from those with the most rings Plato to those well matured Le Guin Borges to the saplings Andrea Bowers Katie Paterson this book is a magnificently interlinked series of texts separated by Holten's own tree alphabet translating each piece into an abstract language The texts are carefully selected right down to Holten's own conversation with her paper supplier; each offers a different perspective on the tree as it relates to us and our world
