Why should the beautiful die?

Shelf Fungus


For no very good reason, Father Pitt decided to see what this picture of a log covered with little bracket fungi would look like if it had been printed with one of the limited-color processes sometimes used for books of popular science in the 1930s. There is actually a plugin for the GIMP that imitates two-color Technicolor, which suited his purposes well enough. What do you think? Would this not have made an admirable illustration in The Child’s Book of Wonders of the Fungus World?

Camera: Olympus E-20n.

  1. Turned out very nice. Not only an admirable illustration in the Child’s Book of Wonders of the Fungus World but also the Adult’s Book of Wonders of the Fungus World.
