I have fond memories of mushroom picking with my father as a child and I happen to love every kind of mushroom, so am fascinated with the additional element of living art added to the books.
Eight different, edible mushroom varieties such as Winecap or Oyster mushrooms are cultivated within particular books and are nourished by the book walls. The mushrooms are pre-cultivated from spawn-sets and prepared for insertion in the book walls in well-watered book bundles.
