  • Regular price $29.99


All about CAUDEX is an incredibly thorough look at the caudex plant variety - plants that have a different stem morphology from the typical angiosperm dicotyledon stem. Examples of this include palms, ferns, and cycads. Caudiciform means stem-like, and is used to describe Pachycaul or thick-stemmed plants. With over 150 pages of beautiful photography and information (mostly in Japanese), this is a treasure trove for anyone interested in this unusual variety of plant life. The pottery section towards the back is particularly nice and it also features an interview with Shinsuke Takizawa of NEIGHBORHOOD fame - a well known plant collector in his own right. You won't be able to stop leafing through his one...from Sansai Books.
