A photogravure of an apple tree dappled in sunlight accompanies this special edition of Robert Adams’s 2005 book Turning Back, which explores the role of trees and forests in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The same series was the subject of a 2016 exhibition at the Colby College Museum of Art.
