We are excited to announce the lucky winner of the Australian rainforest fruits competition, Michael Doherty of Canberra. This competition celebrates the launch of the field guide companion to Wendy and William Coopers landmark title Fruits of the Australian tropical rainforest. All customers who purchased the field guide were assigned a number, and the winning entrant was drawn using an online random number generator (www.Random.org).
Congratulations to Michael, who is now the proud owner of an original William T. Cooper watercolour. Thank you also to William T. Cooper for the opportunity to offer this fantastic artwork to our customers for this special event and for producing such a wonderful book.
Each copy of Australian rainforest fruits comes with a personally signed bookplate by Wendy and William Cooper, which was produced especially for the launch of this book.This beautifully illustrated field guide covers 504 of the most common fruiting plants found in Australia's eastern rainforests, as well as a few species that are rare in the wild but generally well-known.
