Book Description

1 Oct 2010
The natural beauty of flowers has been celebrated by writers, poets and artists for hundreds of years. In this collection of exquisite images by award-winning photographer Clive Nichols, flowers are shown in all their glory, from the delicately flared petals of a crocus to the close-packed velvety whorls of a red rose; and from the intricate markings of an orchid to the kaleidoscope-like symmetry of wild borage. In these photographs, where every bloom is treated as a work of art, the tiniest details are brought into wonderful clarity, displaying an astonishing variety of structure, texture and colour. Concise, insightful texts by Noël Kingsbury complement the images, providing botanical, historical and ecological information on each flower. This beautiful yet informative book is ideal for lovers of photography and of the natural world.

2.0 out of 5 stars Please think twice! 4 Aug 2011
By thunder
Come on! A well known photographer does not mean he will always take beautiful pictures. The text is well written but most of the pictures were not that great. An advanced photographer could do better than that. Needlessly to say... the book is not worth it in term of quality ! Luckily I borrowed it from the library before I went out and got myself one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Book 25 Mar 2011
By Gill
I love Clive Nichols work and I haven't been disappointed with this book. The photographs are beautiful. Some of the flowers are photographed against a complimentary background, others against contrasting backgrounds. Clive also gives some tips on how he achieved the images.
