Wyl Menmuir: The Heart of the Woods



For his new book The Heart of the Woods, Wyl Menmuir travelled the length and breadth of Britain and Ireland to meet the people who plant trees, the ecologists who study them, those who shape beautiful objects and tools from wood, and those who use them to help others. 

Through the course of his book, Wyl explores what we get out of spending time around trees, the ways in which our relationship with them has changed over time, and the ways in which our future is interconnected with theirs. Written in close collaboration with makers, crafters, and woodsmen and women, the book is a timely celebration of the living material with which they work, and the stories of their craft and skills.
