A single kapok tree in Costa Rica sends a global message

 

In this remarkable edition, environmental scientist Gretchen C. Daily and photographer Charles J. Katz describe how one relict tree, the magnificent Ceiba pentandra in the village of Sabalito, carries physical and spiritual importance far out into the world. In poetic language interwoven with scientific fact, she also describes the historical and natural history of this tree and of the ceiba species in general. Katz's photographs of the tree and village amplify this message quietly yet forcefully.

Gretchen Daily is the recipient of the Blue Planet Prize, the world's most prestigious award for environmental sustainability.

One Tree is in the permanent collections of the Vatican Library, the Ute & Bill Bowes Art & Architecture Library at Stanford University, Pennsylvania State University Library, and University of California Berkeley Library.

A book of drawings in two bindings

 

Mateo López draws simply and directly in pencil with an engineer's precision. We reprinted each one digitally on Caneletto paper, French folded each page, and stab-stitched the book block to create a facsimile. 150 copies are encased in a cruciform portfolio with a shoelace tie. 30 copies slip into a tray within a clam-shell box that houses a delicately cut paper sculpture, pinned to a facsimile cutting board.
