What I'm Reading: The Woodbook

Posted by

Romeyn Beck Hough's "The Woodbook" (Taschen, $30) is a visual encyclopedia of wood types -- and is so stunning and expansive. The images are taken of wood samples from 350 trees, culled and  collected by Hough between 1888 and 1913. It's fascinating to flip through and see all the colors and textures represented in different wood types -- take a look!
