A taxonomy of fish native to Tennessee and bearing names like “creek chubsucker” and “weed shiner” is the subject of this artist’s book, which focuses on the human interpretation and classification of nature. Composed of photocopied sketchbook pages, the book’s individual drawings eschew scientific detail for an energy and inventiveness that you won’t find in any biology textbook. — Printed Matter
