This book by Jeannie Baker is quite a jump from her first book, Polar. Where the Forest Meets the Sea is set in the Daintree Rainforest in Australia. Baker made two trips there to research and collect materials. Her relief collages were made from many materials such as modeling clay, papers, textured materials, preserved natural materials and paints. Her work is really remarkable and quite realistic. Baker is also a film maker. This book was made into a 10 minute animated film which won the 1988 Australian Film Institute Award for Best Australian Animated film.
