The Wild Year is a book by local comic-maker, illustrator and all-round great human being Kristyna Baczynski! This beautiful little book takes us wandering and foraging through the seasons, learning about the flora we discover as we go.
There are ninety plants and wildflowers to discover within these gorgeously illustrated pages, and each entry provides all kinds of fascinating facts, from the geographical and scientific to the folkloric and culinary. You'll find plenty of familiar plants inside, but also a wealth of lesser-known flowers, shrubs and fungi (including the wonderfully named Stinking Benjamin, Dutchman's Breeches and Ghost Pipe!).
A book to slip in your pocket and take with you when you're out and about - A wild Year is an insightful and playful guide to finding beauty in each season.
Right, we're off to crush some Bog Myrtle and rub it on our legs to ward off midges!
