In Wildness Is the Preservation of the World is a vintage classic that pairs passages by writer Henry David Thoreau with images by photographer Eliot Porter. 

Ahead of its time, this bestselling—and long-out-of-print—classic monograph was first published in 1962. 

Porter masterfully created color photographs of the New England woods to pair with the writings of Henry David Thoreau.

Often referred to as the very first coffee table book ever published. Both Porter and Thoreau—although they lived a century apart—worked endlessly to preserve nature and protect it from manmade interference.
