The Plant Magazine 09


As a curious observer of ordinary plants and other greenery, the magazine presents a monographic on a specific plant and brings together photographers, illustrators, designers, musicians, writers and visual artists; both established and emerging, from all over the world, to share with The Plant their perceptions and experiences around plants.

This issue features: intended as a celebration, and hence it is full of flowers. A celebration of life, but also death. Because once the summer is over, feelings of nostalgia and delusion are pointless. Visiting artist Tomi Ungerer at the back of beyond, in the farm on Ireland's south west coast where he and his family have found a paradise, was a revelation. Read his books, the children's ones and the other ones, too. When the summer is over, despite the fog and the wind, never be afraid: “Don't hop, cope”, as Tomi scribbled inside our signed copy of The Fog Man.
