Book of the Flower

Book Design

A sylvan collection of beautiful depictions of flowers by artists, photographers and illustrators

‘Art is the flower, life is the green leaf’ – Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Following on from the Book of the Dog, The Book of the Bird and The Book of the Cat, The Book of the Flower is a sylvan collection of beautiful depictions of flowers by artists, photographers and illustrators.

Haphazard bunches, formal bouquets, chance arrangements, quiet and thoughtful rural encounters – these illustrations are interspersed with short text about the artists and their interest in particular flowers.

From Georgia O’Keeffe’s sumptuous close-ups of Jimson Weed and cactus flowers to Matisse’s roses, Keika Hasegawa’s chrysanthemums and Albert York’s close study of zinnias, this is a wonderful collection for art-lovers, gardeners and flower-fanciers.
