Baird,David M.
Autumn leaves dry in the sun, curling to make endless abstract patterns of curved surfaces and shadows. Or are they leaves? A closer look with Dr David M Baird reveals not leaves but layers of mud, which have shrunk into leaf-like shapes as they dried. Baird's amazing photographs show that intriguing patterns and textures are all around us. In "Beauty in the Rocks" the esteemed geologist, writer and poet takes readers on a photographic journey around the globe, finding beauty and form in settings as exotic as the Galapagos and as close to home as Yoho National Park. His intense, artistic images and accompanying text give mood and meaning to the changing earth and encourage readers to observe carefully the world around them, recognise what they see and understand how it came to be. From the hexagonal 'organ pipe' patterns in Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway to the 'hoodoos' in Yoho National Park to the wrinkled surface skin of cooled liquid lava on James Island in the Galapagos, the wonders captured in this book will engage and enlighten anyone with an interest in the natural world. 144pp.

The 'Holden Arboretum' is a living museum of forests and woodlands, meadows and display gardens, mountains and ravines, rock ledges and lakes, rivers and streams, wetlands and bogs, with an abundance of wildlife. It is a place of year-round beauty with tremendous scientific and ecological importance. The Holden Arboretum was established on 100 acres in 1931 by people of vision and great generosity who understood the importance of protecting precious green spaces for future generations. Today, Holden spans 3,400 acres and is nationally know for its plant collections, education programs, research efforts, and its commitment to conservation. Albert Fairchild Holden, the founding father of the Holden Arboretum, was born in 1866, the third of nine children born to Liberty and Delia Bulkley Holden. His mother was instrumental in the founding of the Cleveland School of Art; his father was involved in the mining business and was, at one time, the owner of Cleveland's major newspaper, "The Plain Dealer". Though Holden had at one time considered bequeathing his estate to Harvard, his alma mater, the untimely death of his 12-year old daughter, Elizabeth, inspired him to instead endow the arboretum in her memory. A trust agreement in his will designated that funds be set aside for development of an arboretum following a life interest for his two remaining daughters, who were teenagers at the time of his death in 1913. N.B. Very slight crease to top edge of front D/J. 231pp.

Gleit, Heidi
This book introduces this fascinating city and its colourful mosaic of inhabitants to readers. A beautifully designed, lavishly illustrated album featuring over 140 full-colour images, this large-format book is a moving journey into the heart of the Israeli capital and the daily life and festivals of its people and pilgrims. Marcelo Bendahan's photographs bring the awesome beauty of the city to life and offer revealing glimpses into various religions and cultures that thrive in Jerusalem. Many of the photographs were ta-ken with a panoramic camera that allowed Bendahan to capture the vigour and diversity of Jerusalem's streets and alleys. The colours are uncommonly rich. The pho-tographs are accompanied by an insightful, informa-tive, and entertaining text that will engage the reader. The book begins by focusing on the religious sites that have attracted pilgrims for centuries and the modern city that has developed around them. The album then introduces readers to the city's diverse population, from dancers and clowns to merchants and models, from boys studying the holy scriptures and arti-sans at work to children at play and pilgrims on parade. 176pp.
