Farm Anatomy: a giveaway.
i’ve been a fan of brookyln-based artist julia rothman since i first became aware of her beautiful work, somewhere around 2006 when i started the blog. but, i have to say, her latest accomplishment, her new book farm anatomy has to be my all-time favorite compilation of her drawings. julia is a city girl, but her husband’s from the country, so visits to the family farm created a curiosity in her about farm life, resulting in this fun, and incredibly useful book.
farm anatomy is one part visual tour and an educational anatomy of farm life, including how many eggs can one hen lay, how to plant an orchard; and then, one part cookbook. i love the sections on making dill pickles, dandelion wine, and the basic steps in making cheese and canning tomatoes. and it’s all adorably illustrated, which makes the fact-filled farm anatomy super fun and oh so charming! as someone who is really interested in growing my own veggies, canning and getting back to basics, i am super psyched to own this book.
