A coffee table version of the book by Abbeville Press is due out in September, and Singer, meanwhile, has his hopes set on Botanica Geographica, which he envisions as a volume per continent of native flora.

“I’m trying to give the world a message, to warn the world that the ecosystems and food chains are breaking down,” says Singer. “Hopefully, through this marriage of art, people will want to know the science. People say that’s so beautiful. What is it? Where is it from? They start asking questions.”
