Abstract

Have you ever looked closely at the restless elegance that makes a Soybean sprout resemble a snake? What about the geometric perfection of the infructescence of the Dandelion, or the armoured shape of the Lemon-balm leaf, reminiscent of a tortoise shell? Giovanni De Sandre’s stunning images will draw you into the magical world of herbs and plants so common as to overrun our roadsides, yet at the same time so extraordinary as to be essential elements in modern phytotherapy.

Featuring a unique, gripping narrative style, this book will introduce you to the wealth hidden in nature all around us, as you venture into a primeval forest teeming with life, shapes and colours, powerful and beneficial alike. Let yourselves be captivated by the history and even the scientific foundations that make these plants so important for our well-being, health and beauty... and from now on, you’ll see their simplicity with new eyes.
