No pictorial book has evoked the kind of emotions that this work did. To the Mts, a profound bow. (Richard M Steel – North Shore Review )
The perfect book for lovers of nature and literature. One of New England’s most-beloved books, Autumn is an homage to nature at her colorful, most-festive best. It is a meditative and passionate journey, a visual and literary feast for everyone who loves New England’s fiery autumn colors, rustic charm, pastoral tranquility, and tradition of excellent writing. From brooding, shadowed waterfalls to blazing leaves under the morning dew, the ninety full-color photographs capture the infinite moods of New England’s most magnificent, most pensive season. The photographs are brought to life by the timeless works of some of America’s finest and wisest writers: Frost, Dickinson, Thoreau, Emerson, E.E. Cummings, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and many more. The Los Angeles Times called the photographs “inspiring” and the writing “nostalgic, evoking a sense of home”, while reviewer Richard M. Steele said: “No pictorial book has evoked the kind of emotions that this work did. To the Mts, a profound bow.”

Jean Mulatier is a renowned French illustrator whose caricatures are internationally acclaimed. His work has appeared in such publications as Esquire, Time, Playboy, and Elle. This is his first book of photography.
A stunning tribute to the majesty of autumn foliage around the world.
From Japan to Connecticut to Ontario, from the amazing intricacy of a single leaf to the abstract splendor of birch trees reflected in a mountain lake, these photographs capture the cycles of nature, the mystery of transformation, and the beauty of the living world. Accompanied by an international selection of literary quotations on the themes of autumn, nature, and beauty, this volume transcends geography and individual cultures to showcase nature’s most glorious season.
When world-famous caricaturist Jean Mulatier made a trip to New England in the fall of 1976, he was so awestruck by the beauty of the fall foliage he realized he had found a lifelong passion. Every autumn thereafter he continued his pilgrimage, traveling the globe to shoot the jewel-like imagery that is presented here for the very first time in this incomparable collection.
