Please check back soon! We’re moving to a new warehouse.
Combining stunning photographs by the world’s leading nature photographers—including new work by Tim Flach and an inspiring text by award-winning author Lewis Blackwell—Rainforest opens our minds to the breathtaking beauty the verdant plant life and diverse animal species of these remarkable ecosystems. Swooping from aerial to macro perspectives, Rainforest captures the world’s most fascinating landscapes at all scales, from a vast sleeping forest cloaked in morning mist to the brilliant iridescent flicker of a butterfly’s wing.
The Smithsonian National Zoo’s Amazonia Exhibit lets visitors glimpse the rich and vibrant underwater life of the Amazon—including the serpent-like arapaima, red-tailed catfish, black pacus, and piranhas. Their 27,000-gallon aquarium is positioned below a living tropical forest where arrow frogs, titi monkeys, and tanagers frolic.

Rainforest-themed artworks are held in our Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and our American Art Museum.
Hardcover, 264 pages, 150 color photographs.

"Bought the book for my son whom has just recently returned from the Peace Corps. His work revolves around the preservation of our environment. He not only loves the photos but was very impressed with all the information that the book contains."
