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 colour of each flower. The hauntingly beautiful photographs as beautiful as the most captivating still-life painting pay respect to classic Victorian botanical illustrations but they are paired, for a younger audience, with succinct, quirky text about the culture and historical interest of each variety of plant. Every example is the most perfect representation of a flower and, thanks to its composition and detail, it will trigger in everyone a fresh desire to look around and feel enriched by the beauty in our world in our gardens, window boxes, flower shops 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 its flora and fauna and the associated benefits on our wellbeing, 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, contemplation or reading.
