Winner of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Golden Pen Award

The text book Natural Surfaces contains over 1,200 high-quality colour photos of the natural world, in print and on CD-ROM with printable TIFF files. The book is tailored to research needs in scope and focus, offering examples for a wide range of artists including theatrical and film set designers and trompe l'oeil artists, architects, interior designers, textile professionals, illustrators and graphic designers as well as artists and designers who create computer environments, including animators and video game designers.

The photographs catalogue images of nature used in art and design, with detailed views of natural elements, plant portraits, and pictures of landscape installations, gardens, and scenic vistas. Horticultural pictures are captioned as to botanical and common names. Images are coded and cross-referenced in the index and on the CD-ROM. With an illustrated glossary, resource sections, and interviews with professionals in landscape design and botanical illustration, this is a great book for students.
