The Plant issue 5: Banana Plant
$25.00 Was $32.00
We visit plant life in Mozambique with Lina Scheynius, the edible garden
and allotment of Alys Fowler in Birmingham and investigate the supernatural
vegetation of LA through the lens of Daniel Trese. Sarah Ryhanen writes
about the 'good life' and the beginnings of Worlds End Farm, her flower farm
in New York state.
Takashi Homma documents the forests of Fukushima in the aftermath
of the Tōhoku earthquake and a sleepy summer's day is spent at Borgen
Island in Sweden with photographer Wai Lin Tse.
We take a child-sized view of the playground, as designed by sculpture
Isamu Noguchi; learn how to make apple and ginger jam, test the pH
of soil using red cabbage and how to play God with a watering can.
You'll also find carnivorous plants, heirloom tomatoes, tree stumps, comic
heroes and even unicorns. Do not forget Scheltens & Abbenes and their
happy salads with a Brother's Grimm twist.
The choice plant is the determined banana plant. The monograph includes
illustrations by Atelier Bingo, Pia Bramley, Leonie Eichin & Ilg, Trüb, Anna
Topuriya and Fizzzbzzzz!
