The Plant Journal – Issue 14
Besides providing botanical contents in a simple, personal and cozy way; The Plant offers plant lovers a new look at greenery by featuring the works of many creative people who share our love for plants.
As a curious observer of ordinary plants and other greenery, the magazine presents a monograph on a specific plant; bringing together photographers, illustrators, designers, musicians, writers and visual artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. These people share with The Plant their unique perceptions and experiences of plants.
The Plant magazine is pleased to release a new issue with three upbeat covers: dreamy landscapes by Marcelo Gomes; the flowers of Disneyland by Alasdair Mclellan and portrait of octogenarian artist Herman de Vries by Juergen Teller.
