A new book from Phaidon examines [flowers'] rich symbolism, drawing on lush, visually striking images from several centuries of creative practice. -Aesthetica Magazine In normal times, visits to gardens, jaunts to discover those famous scenic landscapes and soaking up lush vistas are, of course, one of the highlights for travellers the world over. Flower takes its readers on a different journey - but a voyage nonetheless - across continents and cultures to discover the endless ways artists and designers throughout history, from ancient Egypt to the modern day in New York, have depicted flowers and floral motifs. -Forbes Flower explores the origins of artists' and designers' affinity with blooms across continents and cultures. -Design Week Like life, the flower is fragile and temporary, but we can cherish the beauty of them all the more thanks to Flower. -Gardens Illustrated
