New at IFASBOOKS—Outdoor Adventures

From the earliest explorers to today’s weekend anglers, Florida has long been a land (and sea) of adventure. A group of exciting new books and guides at the IFAS Extension Bookstore allow you to relive those adventures and plan a few of your own.

Early Nature Artists in Florida

Chris Fasolino

The History Press

Before the age of photography, our only knowledge of Florida’s landscapes, flora and fauna came from early naturalists, who braved heat, mosquitoes and alligator-filled lakes to draw detailed sketches of what they saw. Using sketchbooks, journals and his own insights as an art history teacher, author Chris Fasolino creates fascinating portraits of the artists who first brought Florida’s natural beauty to life. This fully illustrated book includes 16 pages of color plates detailing the work of pioneer naturalists Mark Catesby, William Bartram and John Jay Audubon.

Early Nature Artists in Florida will be quickly devoured by anyone interested in history, nature or art.
