Thoreau - Walden - An old friend rediscovered

Walden: 150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic
I purchased the 150th Anniversary edition of Walden which is illustrated by photographs by Scot Miller.

Miller illustrates the classic with photos of Walden Pond and the surrounding countryside through all of the seasons and in its many moods.

I really enjoyed the macroshots and also his detail work. A lot of people would of overlooked the things he saw in the details. The images really helped make this more than just another reading of the old classic.

If you haven't read Thoreau's masterpiece in a while, or are looking for a great edition to put on your coffee-table or add to your Thoreau collection like I did.
