Gorgeous, elliptical, mostly silent art comics by a truly idiosyncratic talent.

"A non-didactic exploration of non-human animals and plants threatened by the ongoing 6th mass extinction. Distills the wonders of biodiversity into black marks that'll likely (unfortunately) endure past their living counterparts unless collective action escalates and. I feel fortunate to have Umber's drawings as a reference whenever needing a reminder of the stakes of destroying capitalism for its impact on non-human animals, humans and our shared ecologies of all scales.

This book is brilliant and beautiful. Umber's drawings are proof that the poetic is important to us all, no matter where we find beauty, or what details give light to creation.
