Since the California Field Atlas was published and has hit stores across California and beyond, it has enjoyed two months at the number one spot for non-fiction paperbacks in Northern California and now almost six month in the top ten. The California Field Atlas has been awarded the 2016 James D. Phelan Award from the San Francisco Foundation, the 2017 Book of the Year award from the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association, and the 2017 Gold Medal for Significant Contribution to Publishing by the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco.
Based on decades of exploring the backcountry of the golden State, artist-adventurer Obi Kaufmann presents the California Field Atlas. Blending science and art to illuminate a multifaceted array of living, connected systems like no work has done before, the California Field Atlas is full of character and color, the ultimate road trip companion and love letter to a place.
