Singapore, Very Old Tree (2nd edition)


Singapore, Very Old Tree aims to boil the generic image of Singapore as a Garden City down to specifics by exploring the concrete, personal connections that Singaporeans have made with trees.

This box set contains a booklet containing the stories of the 30 trees in the project, 30 postcards of the trees, a map of trees of interest in Singapore and poster of one of the trees.
