A Lowcountry Heart
Nonfiction
A Walk in Eden A Walk in Eden by Anders Nilsen
A fantastical view of primeval creation, with an exquisite mix of sprawling landscapes and close-up examinations of plants, fungi, and minerals -- think giant crystal formations emerging out of pools surrounded by lush vegetation and flowers the size of small trees. Though this is a world void of humans, here and there are small reminders of our presence. Informed by the designs of Ernst Haeckel and other early scientific and botanical illustration, Nilsen's world is intricate, playful, and inspired, waiting for you to make it your own. Join in the fun and bring the adult- and kid-friendly world of A Walk in Eden to life.
