Obi Kaufmann will discuss his new book, The Forests of California: A California Field Atlas & answer questions. Host: Brian Edwards-Tiekert.
From the author of The California Field Atlas comes another major work that not only guides readers through the Golden State’s forested lands but also presents a profoundly original vision of nature in the 21st century. The Forest of California features a stunning wealth of Obi Kaufmann’s signature watercolor illustrations, maps, and trail paintings, weaving them into an accessible exploration of the biodiversity that defines California in the global imagination. Kaufmann tells an epic story that spans millions of years, nearly one hundred species of trees, and an astonishing richness of ecosystems. The Forests of California is the first volume in a planned trilogy of field atlases, with The Coasts of California and The Deserts of California yet to come.
Just as Kaufmann is creating a fresh understanding of the more-than-human world, KPFA Radio is herewith undertaking the new visual media of the webinar, leaping off with The Forests of California – a work unusually deserving of being visible on our screens.
