A man with a passion for mushrooms

While at the annual mushroom festival at Correze in France, I met a man with a remarkable enthusiasm for mushrooms.  He has produced some beautiful books featuring mushrooms, two of which I purchased.  One was a book of poems illustrated with mushrooms and the other was a coffee table book describing the work of a variety of artisans who produce mushrooms from various media.  He also has a range of images of various sizes featuring mushrooms.  A truly remarkable man.

His website can be found here:  Benoit Peyre

The photo below is self explanatory.
