    Les Plantes et Babylone (“Plants and Babylon: looking at weeds in urban surroundings”) by artist Joas is dedicated to urban flora. Système Sensible (Charlotte Gauvin and Matthieu Meyer) used Kelvin Sans, designed by Thomas Bouville and distributed by 205TF. More information on Lesplantesetbabylon.fr

    This beautiful book offers a selection of photographs from the Plants of Babylon project, a series of snapshots made daily and started in 2006. It highlights the spontaneous nature of weeds encountered in urban areas, during travels and trips. Plants find balance and manage to exist in the interstices of cities, where we do not expect them. The floral world settles in the urban space under unfavorable and sometimes hostile conditions. It is less the appearance of the plants that guides this photographic work than the desire to share the beauty of their quiet presence in the streets.
