I printed this book during my artist residency at Bananafish Books. The book contains 150 drawings of plants, which I did from community gardens the inhabitants of old neighbourhoods in Shanghai set up at the entrance of their homes.

The Shanghai Pearl Art Museum commissioned a special edition of 365 copies of the book to celebrate the first anniversary of the institution.
