The book

Penguin Books commissioned me to create two watercolor maps for their book »Shinrin Yoku: The Art and Science of Forest Bathing«.

Shinrin-Yoku or forest bathing is the practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. A pillar of Japanese culture for decades, Shinrin-Yoku is a way to reconnect with nature, from walking mindfully in the woods, to a break in your local park, to walking barefoot on your lawn.
