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.
The curious and inquiring photographic lens reveals unexpected details, an amazing world hidden in well-known plants, some of which we use in the kitchen every day.
Naturalis fons delivers a clear message, addressed to each of us: to appreciate the wonders of nature by learning to look with new eyes at the most common and apparently insignificant plants. It will be a continuous discovery of unknown beauties and unexpected features.
