The Botanical City

Roadside 'weeds' and other routinely overlooked aspects of urban nature provide a fascinating glimpse into the complex global ecologies and new cultures of nature emerging across the world. This unique collection of essays explores the botanical dimensions of urban space, ranging from scientific efforts to understand the distinctive dynamics of urban flora to the way spontaneous vegetation has inspired artists and writers. The book comprises five thematic sections: histories and taxonomies, botanising the asphalt, the art of urban flora, experiments in non-design, and cartographic imaginations. The essays explore developments in Berlin, London, Lahore, and many other cities, as well as more philosophical reflections on the meaning of urban nature under the putative shift to the Anthropocene. 100 colour images

This is a beautifully produced interpretation of an 18th century classic, Floral Londinensis, which set out to record every wild plant in London and which remains surprisingly relevant.

* A modern, colorful take on a classic 18th-century book illustrating London's wild plantsCities are abundant with nature - and nowhere more so than London. So why is it that we fail to notice the greenery that surrounds our busy lives? And isn't now the time, with the growing ecological crisis, for those of us in cities to reconnect to nature? This is a beautifully produced interpretation of an 18th-century classic, Floral Londinensis, which set out to record every wild plant in London and which remains surprisingly relevant. Working with Kew horticulture expert Helena Dove, we have handpicked the 100 most fascinating plants from the original and included highly faithful reproductions of ultra-detailed illustrations set alongside a new set of unusual facts, contemporary medicinal uses, modern recipes and more.
