Artist, poet, and naturalist Obi Kaufmann will present his number one best-selling CALIFORNIA FIELD ATLAS at the 12th annual Noe Valley Word Week festival at Folio Books (3957 24th St. San Francisco) on Monday, March 5, 2018, from 7pm to 8pm. Obi will present a short lecture and then offer signed copies for sale. Free admission. A Word Week 2018 event.
Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of hand-painted maps and wildlife renderings and based on his decades of walking the backcountry of California, Obi’s CALIFORNIA FIELD ATLAS is a phenomenal testimony to the natural world of the Golden State and unlike anything that has come before. Full of character and color, the CALIFORNIA FIELD ATLAS is quickly becoming a new classic, being hailed as a “gorgeously illustrated compendium” (Sunset Magazine) and that “…it will provide you with a greater appreciation for the state’s ecological jewels and landmarks. Kaufmann’s writing offers us hope during this trying time for conservationism and climactic pushback.” (San Francisco Chronicle). Follow Obi on Instagram @coyotethunder and on Twitter @obikaufmann
