From Art’s Bookshelf: “Mother – A Tribute to Mother Earth”

I receive a fantastic gift in the mail today – a beautiful high-quality book encompassing the award-winning photographs of Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten’s work over the past 15 years, and much more.

It stands to reason that a book chock full of award winning photos has plenty to look at, but the detail and design of this book is art in itself. It leaves a stunning first impression, with a textured cover and a gorgeous owl-pattered endsheets.

This is a large-format gorgeous book. Aside from Marsel’s award-winning photos, it also features his favorite images from the past decade and a half, with a wide variety of atmospheric and moody images of the natural world.

Not only that, but purchase of the book supports a great cause. From Marsel’s website:

“Part of the proceeds of MOTHER will be donated to The Canopy Project. Their aim is to improve our shared environment by planting trees across the globe. In 2020, The Canopy Project has a goal of planting 7.8 billion trees – one tree for every person on earth. For every book sold, 5 trees will be planted. For every Collectors’ Edition sold, 50 trees will be planted. 

The paper used for MOTHER contains no wood.”

This is a fantastic high-quality book full of amazing images, and supports a great cause. What is not to like?! Marsel, thank you so much for the gift – now with it’s own place on Art’s Bookshelf!
