A Victorian Flower Album by Henry Terry / with commentary by Hiroshi Unno / ISBN 9784756250605 / A 120-page hardcover, about 7.5 x 9 inches, from the publisher PIE International / Bilingual English / Japanese
A collection of charming hand-drawn wildflowers from the Victorian Era.
In the Victorian era, one father sketched wildflowers in the hills of Oxfordshire, making notes and observations for each flower for his daughters. This book is a compilation of those charming illustrations. You will find heartwarming hand-drawn flowers that still grow wild in many places today, along with a detailed glossary including each flower’s botanical name. This book can be used as a fine floral encyclopedia, but it is also a good reference book for designers and illustrators. It also makes a wonderful gift for any lover of flowers or botanical illustration. A Victorian Flower Album was originally published in 1873, and this new edition includes commentary by Hiroshi Unno (author/contributor for PIE International's Western art collection series).
