Curated Collection #2

When I was younger, my reading diet consisted of primarily fiction all day, every day. It was only when I entered college that I began enjoying reading non-fiction as well, alternating between the two as I chose my next read.

Recently I finished H is For Hawk by Helen McDonald, a writer and naturalist, who describes her training of a young goshawk. While the book focuses on her relationship with her goshawk Mabel, it is also about Helen's grief over the loss of a family member.  I admit it took me awhile to engage deeply with H is for Hawk,  but McDonald's descriptive language of the English countryside provides the inspiration for this curated collection. It is a book worth reading to reflect on the human condition and our relationship with the natural world. 

The collection of images below focus primarily on landscapes and dense, overlapping colors.

 
  I love the woodcut style print used for the cover illustration. I'm on the search for more prints to add to this collection.
