Josephine Bacon has been picking wild mushrooms since she was nine. Fired with enthusiasm for fungi by her natural sciences teacher at school, at the age of 16, she joined the British Mycological Society. She has a collection of 500 books, old and new, about fungi, and has participated in many forays. She has also written A Naturalist's Guide to Mushrooms and other Fungi of Britain & Northern Europe (John Beaufoy Publishing), and translated 4 books on fungi from French. Paul Sterry is one of the UK's leading wildlife and natural history photographers, with more than 40 highly successful books to his name.
