To call a plant a weed is doing it a real injustice. It’s simply a wild plant that is not deliberately cultivated, growing where it is not wanted.  The Joy of Weeds is a colourful, illustrated celebration of wild plants from around the world, and why we should love, them not loathe them. The book features 50 graphic illustrations and writing by Paul Farrell.
He first got the idea from spending time on his allotment and appreciating more the structures and nature of weeds rather than the vegetables and so wanted to find out more about them.

The world of illustrator and designer, Paul Farrell, is filled with shape and colour. Brought up on a diet of 70s pop culture, pattern, stamp collecting, toys shop trips and the graphic arts - his bold, geometric graphic style translates the everyday into simple, colourful and playful imagery. He has close connections with nature which provide much of the inspiration for his work. Paul is also a print maker and brand designer, now self employed based back in his home city of Bristol, England, following a creative career of 20 years in London.
