    A new classic gets the deluxe treatment

    Following the success of Obi Kaufmann’s bestselling The California Field Atlas, this Deluxe Edition features a larger format showcasing Kaufmann’s sumptuous watercolors and lettering. In addition to its larger size, the Deluxe Edition has illustrated endpapers, a ribbon bookmark, premium paper, and gold embossing on a luxurious leather-like cover. This is a must-have for any book lover, or for fans of nature guides, atlases, and works that fuse science and art. Plus, with a limited print run and deluxe materials, this edition makes a stunning gift.

    A winner of multiple awards, including the 2018 California Book Award (Notable Contribution to Publishing) and the NCIBA Book of the Year Award (Regional Interest), and a #1 San Francisco Chronicle bestseller, The California Field Atlas is unlike any other book. Artist-adventurer Obi Kaufmann takes readers beyond normal conceptions of California, blending science and art to illuminate the state’s multifaceted array of living, connected systems. Kaufmann unveils layer after layer of the natural world, depicting its myriad ecologies, topographies, and histories in exquisite maps and trail paintings. The effect is staggeringly beautiful: a California made up of dancing tectonic plates, watersheds, and wildflower gardens. In addition to maps, this atlas offers spirited illustrations of wildlife, keys that explain natural phenomena, and a clear-sighted but reverential text. Full of character and in a class all its own, The California Field Atlas is the ultimate love letter to the Golden State.
