Description
In our youthful imaginations, farms are simple, unhurried places where you drive a tractor and feed some animals, and occasionally take a nap in the hay. But a real working farm—even a small one—is in fact a remarkably sophisticated food-production system, with technologies, equipment, and techniques that have evolved over millennia. Somehow, illustrator and design blogger Julia Rothman manages to give us both farms at once. Her colorfully drawn, remarkably detailed diagrams of farm life are packed with expert information—like the plowing pattern for a two-parcel field—yet they are so chock full of rural charm, you'll find yourself itching to have a crack at that plow yourself. From the shapes and colors of squash varieties to the parts of a goat, from how a barn is constructed to what makes up a beehive, Rothman reveals every corner of the barnyard.

"The perfect picture book for grown-up dreamers."—Boston Globe

"Utterly charming and thoroughly researched, Farm Anatomy is one of those rare treats that speak to your eyes and your heart, and in the process manage to expand your mind."—Atlantic

"A kind of Country Life 101 textbook, graced with warmth and good humor."—Dallas Morning News
