The perfect countryside and armchair companion to the wild flowers of the British Isles.
Illustrator Angie Lewin and author Christopher Stocks follow up the success of The Book of Pebbles with The Book of Wild Flowers, a celebration of British wild flowers and their place in the landscape.
Christopher Stocks reveals the interesting and unusual history and science of wild flowers, including guidance on where they can be found and also tips for cultivation. Designed in a similar format to The Book of Pebbles, it focuses on twenty-one of Lewin’s favourite wild flowers, and include reproductions of her paintings and illustrations, many of them created specially for the book.
Sustaining our long-held affection for the British countryside, The Book of Wild Flowers will appeal to anyone who loves British wild flowers, as well as fans of Angie Lewin, who is widely admired for her alluring images of the natural world. It is intended to be followed by a companion volume on cultivated flowers.
