B3964. Native Alternatives to Invasive Plants / Burrell
B3964. Native Alternatives to Invasive Plants by C. Burrell. 2011. 240pp. 6"x9". Paper

This book suggests alternatives for about 100 commonly planted ornamentals - ones that are escaping from cultivation and invading our natural spaces. These invasives displace our native plants, destroying the balance and diversity of our natural places. For each invasive plant, this manual provides non-invasive native plants of similar size and use in the landscape. It is an all-region guide, but is particularly good for the Eastern US. A Brooklyn Botanic Garden Guide.

B3978. Dishu: Ground Calligraphy in China / Chastenet
B3978. Dishu: Ground Calligraphy in China by Francois Chastenet. 2013. 320pp. 6.25"x9.5". Paper

This photographic essay documents the practice of dishu, ephemeral calligraphy written on the pavement using clear water as ink. This practice originated in a north Beijing park in the 1990s and soon spread to most major Chinese cities. Thousands of anonymous street calligraphers operate daily in Chinese parks and streets. Their monumental scale letterings are based on classic Chinese literature, poetry, and aphorisms, and range from static and regular to highly cursive styles. Because of the scale, writing is with the whole body; it is a physical and visual dance.
