I bought this as a surprise Xmas present for my wife who is very keen on art and gardening. She loves it. The quality of the illustrations is superb and the chronological presentation a more interesting approach than grouping by plant type.
Wow! This has to be one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen. It is certainly 'up there' with Redoute's work. The rendition of flowers by these talented artists is utterly breath-taking. The book is published in association with the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew - need I say more? Gorgeous and that's putting it very low!
Simply brilliant for anyone interested in flowers or art. The pictures are absolutely wonderful - you need to have the book handy to dip into as the fancy takes you. A wonderful present for your gardening friends or family.
