    New British fungi foraging book in the pipeline

    The book will be published by a young and ambitious company currently making some of the classiest out-doorsy books around. They are called Wild Things Publishing and their mission is to "create inspiring books (and apps) that get people out, experiencing and enjoying nature, and our wonderful, often local, world. back to where the Wild Things are" http://www.wildthingspublishing.com. Words and photography by yours truly.

    The book has a working title of "The Mushroom Forager" and will come out in July next year. In 300-ish pages it will mention every known edible species in lowland Britain, all the toxic species/groups and few other bits and pieces. It will contain detailed information and high quality colour photos of around 200 of the most important species - well over twice as many as the most comprehensive existing book on this topic (John Wright's river cottage handbook).

    Some examples of the quality of photography to expect, and an extract from the text: http://www.geoffdann.co.uk/the-book/

    Chop chop fella - was just about to create a new post asking about a good reference book on this
