Fascinated by the majestic giants of Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Japanese artist Masumi Yamanaka spent five years carefully illustrating some of the oldest and finest trees growing in the Gardens. The resulting paintings are remarkably lifelike, showing the trees’ form, flowers, foliage, and sometimes fruit, at different stages throughout the year. They are a callback to the golden age of botanical art yet infused with an elegant modernity.

The Treasured Trees postcard book follows up on the success of Yamanaka’s 2015 collection of the same name. This pocket gallery features twelve beautiful cards, allowing anyone to send a Nikko maple to a companion, a dragon tree to a friend, or a maidenhair tree to a lover. The cards are bound together in a sturdy book, making it a wonderful gift for garden lovers or perfect springtime impulse buy for anyone who wants to spread a little more greenery in the world.
