Roger Phillips is an award-winning photographer with a reputation spanning thirty years. He has consistently pioneered the use of colour photography for the reliable identification of natural history subjects, and has written more than 20 books dedicated to this purpose.
Roger Phillips has written the best mushroom book I know: the
sublime taxonomic accuracy of his descriptions and photographs,
combined with an evangelical and infectious passion for the
subject, will make an instant mycophile of anyone who picks it up.
