Sally Bunker has just had the launch of her book “Portraits of Trees of Hong Kong and Southern China” which she has spent 7 years producing along with Professor Richard Saunders and Chun Chiu Pang of Hong Kong University. This coincided with an exhibition of some of her originals from the book at the University gallery. The book has been described as a ‘crossover’ book, being both an art book, a scientific textbook, and a very readable account of the trees and their features and uses. It is available on Amazon from 30th May
