Local History – April- July 2010

Posted by Jonathan on July 23rd, 2010


I have been collecting and pressing many leaves and flowers from the Root Zone site. These pressings will then be placed into all the books in the local history section of the local library in Sherwood. Sherwood library has a comprehensive section on local history. I will be placing one or two of the pressing into each book. I have on a few occasions been reading a book and come across a pressed flower or leaf and know that it is a strange and oddly personal encounter.

From early July people taking out local history books will come across these delicate, resonant markers. I am curious if the pressed leaves will be removed or left in place.
