Inspired by classic illustrated botanical volumes, this is a modern celebration of wild, garden, and exotic flowers. A single photographic image captures the intricate detail, form, texture, and color of each flower. The beautiful photographs are paired with succinct, quirky text about the culture and historical interest of each plant variety.
Each image will trigger a fresh desire to look around and feel enriched by the beauty in our world - in our backyards, window boxes, florists, and parks. Broken down into chapters based on floral characteristics or symbolism, this is a stunning gift book that taps into the growing interest in the natural world around us and the associated benefits to our well-being, and the powerful pursuit of quiet, mindful activities. Whether for dipping into, or poring over, these pages will bring pleasure to anyone who loves the beauty of flowers, art, design, or reading.
