Elementum has taken some time to get to us, but it's worth the wait. It's a beautifully informative work, with stunning visuals and interesting articles.

Elementum Journal
Edition Three – Roots
144 pages, limp notch bound for durability and printed using vegetable inks in full colour on FSC-approved uncoated paper.
Size 274 x 210mm
Printed in the UK

In Edition Three we travel to the islands of Haida Gwaii, thought to be where the first humans settled in what is now Canada, and we consider the species that once roamed our lands but now exist only in song, story or bone. We go deep underground, and into the 'dark wilderness' of caves, and we reflect on the complicated and elusive history of the Green Man. We consider the fragile ecologies of islands, join a poet and an artist in pursuit of the spirit of Edward Thomas, and tell the story of abandoned mines through extraordinary three-dimensional maps. These and other stories are accompanied by breathtaking images from printmakers, illustrators and photographers.

With contributions from Kathleen Jamie, Jim Crumley and Wyl Menmuir, and featuring commissioned illustration from Catherine Hyde and Jackie Morris.

About Elementum:

Our vision is to produce a publication about getting back to what really matters through nurturing our connection to the natural world. Constantly inspired and fascinated by the living world around us, we believe that in better understanding it we will better understand our place within it, our responsibilities and the possibilities open to us.

Elementum will give the reader a space to reflect and absorb ideas, not be harried by advertising, stories of human failing or imminent threat. Through the written word and the silence of image, guided by a theme for each edition, we will bring together the scientist’s findings with the artist’s response and the ecologist’s observation with the writer’s reflection to craft stories of transformation, exploration and intrigue. We will ask questions as well as seek to answer them, retaining curiosity and always a sense of wonder at the unknown and unseen.

Guided by a different theme for each edition, Elementum is published twice a year.
