About the Author:

Taylor Lockwood has a mission: to melt the frost of fungophobia in America. So, he set out to find and photograph the world's most beautiful mushrooms, and to share with others the images that resulted from this global treasure hunt. It is his hope that his work will help to raise the awareness of and appreciation for the members of this quiet kingdom.After publishing Treasures from the Kingdom of Fungi in 2001, in 2005 Lockwood released his first educational work The Mushroom Identification Trilogy, a three-part video on DVD. The first of its kind, this visual guide to mushroom identification educates and equips the viewer with the tools they need to get out into the woods. In addition, Lockwood has produced a full catalog of mushroom-art products which feature his photography. For more information, visit his website: www.KingdomofFungi.com. Lockwood maintains an active travel and public speaking schedule, and manages his stock photography and mushroom products business. His images have appeared in The New York Times and Mother Earth News, books by the University of California Press and Glencoe/McGraw-Hill, as well as various and numerous other newspapers, magazines, journals, mushroom field guides, nature and habitat guides, and textbooks from all over the world. His images are also featured on mushroom products produced by edible and medicinal mushroom companies. To view his gallery of images, visit www.FungiPhoto.com.

From the Inside Flap:

This gorgeous and unique addition to the literature on fungi could well be the book that brings mushrooms into the mainstream of nature appreciation. A feast for the eyes. . .more than 270 spectacular color photos portray a wondrous array of mushrooms and other fungi from six continents. Lockwood, already known internationally for presenting his multi-media shows of colorful and fantastic fungi under the same title, has created a book that elevates mushroom photography to an art form. . .
