Saturday Find: The Native Trees of Canada

I was poking around on Design*Sponge this week and found something painted that drew my attention – The Native Trees of Canada.  It’s actually a new book by Leanne Shapton; a book with paintings based off of a 1956 Canadian government reference book of the same name.  According to the description, Leanne “takes the otherwise complex objects of trees, pinecones, and seeds and strips them down into bold, almost abstract shapes and colors.”  I think interpretations like these would make gorgeous wall hangings.  Learn more about the book and see additional images here.
