A centuries-old saying goes, “Great oaks from little acorns grow.” But as Seeing Seeds reveals, there is much more to a seed than the plant it will someday become: seeds, seedheads, pods, and fruits have their own astounding beauty that rivals, and sometimes even surpasses, the beauty of flowers. In these stunning pages you’ll gain an understanding of how seeds are formed and dispersed, why they look the way they do, and how they fit into the environment. Seeing Seeds will take you to strange and wonderful places. When you return, it’s safe to say that you’ll never look at a seed the same way again.
“Magical encapsulations of the future, seeds also are tiny worlds of their own. The new book, Seeing Seeds, explores them in near microscopic detail.”
An early review says:
“In this incredibly beautiful book, Chace explains the importance of seeds, how they are formed and dispersed and why we are so dependent on them. Written in layman’s terms, this is a book that will be easily understood and enjoyed by any amateur naturalist; and those photographs! The photos in this book are some of the most extraordinarily beautiful things I have ever seen, easily putting the loveliest rose to shame. An absolutely gorgeous book!”
