The Plant 5 – Banana Plant

From:  14.00

Besides providing botanical contents in a simple, personal and cozy way, The PLANT offers to plant lovers a new look on greenery by featuring the works of creative people who also love plants.



The Plant 5 – Banana Plant, with the cover shot by Lina Scheynius.

The Plant 5 – Banana Plant visits plant life in Mozambique with Lina Scheynius and the edible garden and allotment of Alys Fowler in Birmingham. It also investigates the supernatural vegetation of LA through the lens of Daniel Trese. Sarah Ryhanen writes about the ‘good life’ and the beginnings of Worlds End Farm, her flower farm in New York state.

Takashi Homma documents the forests of Fukushima in the aftermath of the Tōhoku earthquake and a sleepy summer’s day is spent at Borgen Island in Sweden with photographer Wai Lin Tse. We take a child-sized view of the playground, as designed by sculpture Isamu Noguchi; learn how to make apple and ginger jam, test the pH of soil using red cabbage and how to play God with a watering can.

You’ll also find carnivorous plants, heirloom tomatoes, tree stumps, comic heroes and even unicorns. Do not forget Scheltens & Abbenes and their happy salads with a Brother’s Grimm twist.

The choice plant is the determined banana plant. The monograph includes illustrations by Atelier Bingo, Pia Bramley, Leonie Eichin & Ilg, Trüb, Anna Topuriya and Fizzzbzzzz!
