Seventy-six painters, sculptors, photographers, glass and conceptual artists from Ireland to Argentina, Korea to the United States, have come together in an inspiring book to answer a call by Dr. Seuss (in his 1971 classic, The Lorax) to: Speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues. The artists in this powerful new book, Speak For The Trees, include both young and emerging artists, and such world-renowned figures as David Hockney, conceptual artist Yoko Ono, pop-surrealist Mark Ryden, international-environmental artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude and the beyond categorization Starn Brothers. Each artist contributed artwork, which has been showcased on a two-page spread together with the artist's thinking on his or her work in relationship to trees, and with a quotation each selected from writers as diverse as Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, Abraham Lincoln and Henry David Thoreau, William Shakespeare and Ogden Nash.
