Summary

A lush illustrated celebration of nature's most beautiful work, the flower.

From roadside daisies to exotic hothouse lilies, botanical illustrator Adriana Picker has curated specimens from all over the world to create this illustrated compendium of floral wonder. Petal is arranged into various flower families, with illustrations of close-ups, cross-sections, buds and foliage revealing the flowers' unique characteristics, colors and sculptural beauty. Adriana draws on her lifelong obsession for flowers and plants to detail the traditions, folklore, fame, scent and meaning behind our favorite blooms, along with some lesser-known oddities. This is the book of botanical illustration for a new generation of flower lovers.
