Books Galore: Current and Coming

The Green Florilegium (Prestel)

The Green Florilegium (Prestel)

What can be more pleasurable than offering suggestions of books — for giving and receiving.

Among the areas we cover: design, photography, architecture, cities, art, natural history, language, gardens and parks, facsimile editions of rare works, biography, real-life heroes.

Catch up (below) with dozens of books  added to our site since September 2012– and come back later this fall to see what’s  new.

By Christmas 2013, Green News Update will add 60-80 books – out of thousands published worldwide.

Each selection includes an independent review or back story, and where possible, an author interview and excerpt.

Each of the links takes you to a separate posting with multiple books.
