Antenne Books is a distributor for independent publishers. Established in London in 2010, Antenne Books distributes publications on art, photography, design, illustration, theory, writing, fashion and culture.

‘Yuka & The Forest’ marks Lena C. Emery’s second monograph and continuation to ‘Rie’ wherein she talked about the vulnerabilty of revealing our skin and our bodies being bound to the natural world. Within her new book, Emery introduces us to the chinju no mori, the sacred forest. We are reminded that cultures like that of Japan, which are deeply embedded in nature, have been able to perserve much of their natural habitat by having fostered an interconnected value system. Within ‘Yuka & The Forest’ we embark on a journey of reflection that leads us through a remote village in rural Japan, high into the midst of a vast lanscape. We are prompted to reflect on nature’s profound serenity and as the last pages fall also of its demise at the hand of our own.

10% of all proceeds go to WWF (The World Wide Fund for Nature) working in the field of wilderness preservation and the reduction of human impact on the environment.
