Synopses & Reviews
"The earth laughs in flowers," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is the joy of earth's laughter and the beauty of wildflowers that photographer Steve Terrill portrays in his new book, Wildflowers of Oregon
From the mountains to the coast, from the desert to the forests, Terrill focuses his lens on the seemingly endless variety of flowering species found throughout the state. Fields of lupine and Indian paintbrush, cliffs covered with purple penstemon, wild peas blooming along the southern shore...the splendor and diversity of Oregon wildflowers is astonishing.
The name Steve Terrill is synonymous with breathtaking color photographs of Oregon. In his "littlebook" his images are paired with the words of noted writers and poets: Henry David Thoreau, William Blake, Victor Hugo, John Keats, Walt Whitman, William Wordsworth, and Percy Bysshe Shelly.
The Littlebooks series are hardcover 7" x 7" books with 64 pages and 35 color photographs. Photos are paired with inspirational or informational text. These books are good commemorative items and make ideal gifts.
